Practice Area: Divorce / Separation
Outcome: Date of separation obtained; sanctions award obtained
Description: This case involved parties who had been separated for many years but the opposing party and his attorney contended a very recent date of separation, despite my showing them overwhelming evidence to the contrary. The matter went to trial and the matter was settled "on the court house steps." However I advocated for a sanctions award for my client and obtained a substantial award from the court, which amounted to over half of my client's attorney's fees.
