Wife Obtains Attorney Fee Award Against Husband Before Trial

We took over representation of Wife in a pending Orange County divorce case in which Wife sought a continuance of trial and a contribution from Husband towards her attorney’s fees and costs needed to prepare for trial.

Case Results

Wife retained us late in her Orange County divorce case.  She had three prior attorneys.  She had been kicked out of the family residence.  She had a trial date in less than a month from the time she retained our firm.  Our Orange County divorce attorneys quickly assessed her case and determined Husband had not completed mandatory disclosures within the timeframes required by law and that she could successfully seek a continuance of her trial to help prepare for trial and to seek a contribution from Husband towards the fees and costs she needed to get her side of the case ready for trial.  Husband aggressively opposed our request to continue trial and lost.  Husband then aggressively opposed our request for a contribution towards our client’s attorney’s fees and costs.  The Court ordered Husband to pay $15,000 of our client’s anticipated fees and costs before trial within 30 days.

Matthew Sundly represented me in my child custody case. My son was living in a very dangerous and unhealthy environment with his mother. Because of Matthew’s skills in the courtroom and his wonderful rapport with judges and opposing counsel alike, I was able to gain full custody of my son and a very bad situation was completely turned around. Throughout my entire case, Matthew Sundly was there for me and my son both in and out of the courtroom. Matthew was compassionate, professional, and diligent during the entire process and was always available when I needed advice or direction. Thank you for the wonderful results your hard work achieved!
