From her twenty plus years' experience in family law, Dawn DeBoer knows that sometimes you can win the battle and still lose the war.  That's why, in handling divorce, custody, and child support cases, she works hard to assure the future well-being of the whole person and the whole family.

 

I determine each client's specific goals and advocate very strongly for my client's needs and best interest, says Dawn.  But at the same time I attempt to be creative and solve issues amicably, keeping in mind that, when children are involved, the parents are still going to be in each other's life.

 

Though at other times, it is necessary to stand and fight.  Dawn's creativity helped one recent client win a share of her husband's professional partnership in a hotly contested divorce settlement after other lawyers said it could not be done.  We issues subpoenas and worked with a good accountant to value the husband's law partnership, says Dawn.  In the end we divided the value of the business, received significant spousal support and made a major change in the divorce law.

 

She is particularly skilled in handling not only partnership valuations but also business valuations and large, complicated estates.  Although, when necessary, Dawn can go to court and deftly argue for her client's welfare, that is never her first choice.  It is costly going to court, both financially and emotionally, she says.  A lawyer has an obligation to find a good resolution without litigation.  So I work with opposing lawyers to obtain a result that addresses what is important for my client and my client's child.  It is not beneficial to constantly be at odds.

 

I want to make sure my client is successful and can live with the results, and make sure my client has the resources to move forward after the divorce.  But providing those resources goes beyond simply working out finances.  We also see relationship issues with the spouse or children that need attention and often refer clients to counselors to make the situation better, says Dawn.  There' is a lot of counseling and hand-holding involved.

 

Dawn's empathy and understanding compliments her top legal skills to make a client comfortable with her both professionally and personally.  Part of that comfort comes from her understanding of the financial pressures her clients are feeling.

 

I am very conscious of costs, she says.  I know the funds are coming directly out of people's pockets, not corporate coffers.  So I try to have my staff do the legwork and drafting and not add to the client's anxieties.

 

Ms. DeBoer received her J.D. from T. C. Williams School of Law in 1986, and her B.A. from James Madison University in 1983.  Upon law school graduation, Ms. DeBoer served as Judicial Law Clerk to the Henrico County Circuit Court.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

When May a Debtor in Possession (DIP) Sell or Lease Property of the Estate? a Dualistic Approach Requiring Business Justification and Balancing of the Interests of the Debtor, Creditors, and Equity Ho
In response to a $140 million judgment Hulk Hogan, known legally as Terrence Bollea, obtained against, inter alia, Gawker Media, LLC (“Gawker”) and its founder and erstwhile CEO Nicholas G.A. Denton in connection with Mr. Bollea’s allegations that Gawker damaged him by publicizing a video depicting Mr. Bollea and the wife of his friend engaged in sexual intercourse, Mr. Denton filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy case seeking to discharge his personal obligations arising from the judgment and other debts. See In re Nicholas G.A. Denton, Case No. 16-12239 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.).
Equitable Subordination
Bankruptcy courts are special courts. They are neither Article III courts (Northern Pipeline Constr. Co. v. Marathon Pipe Line Co., 458 U.S. 50 (1982)) nor their adjuncts (Stern v. Marshall, 564 U.S. 462 (2011)), but nonetheless have inherent powers (Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. 1188, 1194, 571 U.S. __ (2014)) and—pursuant to 11 U.S.C. § 105—certain equitable powers. This means that they have broad powers to order equitable remedies—such as specific performance—where no adequate remedy at law exists, to the extent not inconsistent with any other provisions of the Bankruptcy Code. See Law v. Siegel, 134 S. Ct. at 1194, 571 U.S. at __. This is the backdrop against which inequitable conduct by a creditor may lead to subordination of its claim in a bankruptcy proceeding under established, codified, equitable principles. Subordination means that a claim, by judicial decree, is lowered, in whole or part, in priority relative to its ordinary position in respect of one or more other claims.
