Result: $131,150.00 (plus interest at 9%)
Attorneys: Zane A. Privette
Facts: Despite the existence of what appeared to be an impenetrable prenuptial agreement between husband and wife, we were able to successfully show the Court how the document, prepared by a well-respected local attorney, actually resulted in a very unconscionable result given the interpretation advanced by the opponent. The trial Court ultimately awarded our client a significant sum of monthly maintenance (alimony), as well as, a smaller sum for the division of minor marital assets, all in addition to the Court ordering our opponent to pay nearly 100% of our client’s attorneys fees. Our opponent sought to challenge the judgment, but ultimately gave in to settlement for a lump sum in favor of our client in lieu of making monthly payments for the remainder of our client’s life and a complete payment of our client’s attorney fees.
