After a tough battle yesterday, I took a huge monkey off my client’s back. His ex-wife had filed for a protective order because she didn’t like the shared custody arrangement that resulted from their divorce. Worse, the order forbade my client from even contacting his daughters. It took a lot of homework, but with a string of texts, I was able to persuade the court that the no contact order was baseless. My client was ecstatic, and he called his girls right away.
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.
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.
I got yet another OWI thrown out this morning. The State had a pseudo scientist (called a D.R.E.) lined up to testify, but they folded when they saw I had an actual doctor.
