Our family law firm represented Husband in a divorce case involving no children. Husband retained primarily to help defend him against an application for domestic violence restraining orders. Husband faced serious job security risk if a permanent restraining order were to issue against him.
Through aggressive but professional litigation of Husband’s defense our attorneys were able to negotiate a settlement whereby Wife dismissed her application for a restraining order in exchange for an agreement by both parties to keep their communications in the future to a minimum (by email and phone only) and only as to their pending divorce case and management of their community property estate. We then proceeded to trial on the divorce case where Husband prevailed on every issue and received an order for Wife to pay for some of his attorneys fees because we were able to show the positions she took at trial were unsupportable by the law and were also unreasonable.
