Tears of joy in the court room

It had been awhile since I’d gotten a hug from a client who was weeping with joy. But that changed today when I persuaded a judge to terminate the parental rights of my client’s abusive ex-boyfriend. She was very relieved when it was over and her parents were also ecstatic that their granddaughter would be protected. Today was a good day.

Accusations of fraud defeated

I spent a day in trial last week defending a civil law suit where my client was being accused by her mother’s ex of forging his signature. If we had lost she would have been on the hook for $15,000. Fortunately, the Court agreed with me that there was no proof she had ever touched the contract, and she won’t have to worry about paying off a judgement. I would fight just as hard for you.
