Description of Practice

Divorce doesn’t have to be the most defining experience of your life draining your energy, your time and your financial resources. We strive to transform fear and uncertainty into peace and confidence.

Denise French founded Divorce Strategies Group in 2014 because of her own ugly divorce in 2007. Denise desired to create a firm where others could have a better divorce experience, and to help other children not face the trauma her own child experienced. She helps others walk through the divorce process in a dignified, confident manner.

Denise is a Certified Valuation Analyst® (CVA®), a Master Analyst in Financial Forensics® (MAFF®), a Certified Divorce Financial Analyst® (CDFA®), a Credentialed Advanced Mediator, and trained as a Collaborative Law Financial Expert. Denise focuses on the areas of divorce finance, divorce tax, separate property tracing, executive compensation in divorce, pension plans, business valuation as well as the emotional aspects of divorce.

Denise also founded French Financial Group in 2012. Prior to French Financial Group, Denise worked as a regional sales executive for large investment and insurance firms. She has over 22 years of experience in financial planning, investment positioning, and income strategies. Denise is also a Chartered Retirement Planning Counselor (CRPC).

Denise regularly blogs at her website about divorce mediation, divorce finance, tax issues pursuant to divorce, and other estate related issues in divorce. She can be found online at
