how we do it
Family Law Case
Our client retained us for a challenging child support matter. She has two teenage sons who she had been primarily supporting on her own with little or no help from the children’s father. The defendant is a self employed contractor and consistently insisted that he had little or no income due to the loss he reported on his tax return. The courts consistently believed the defendant awarding child support in the very low amount of $50.00 per week.
After substantial litigation and discovery of numerous bank accounts which had never been disclosed we negotiated a settlement of over $28,000.00 in back support which included attorney’s fees as well as requiring the defendant to pay one half of their sons braces as well as ½ of all extra-curricular activities. The client was ultimately awarded $275 per week in child support in addition to the above relief.
Criminal Defense Case
Client had a DUI charge. He was located at a red light at 1 am sleeping. The police had him submit to the psycho-physical road tests which were done poorly. He blew a .15 on the alcotest/breathalyzer. I successfully challenged the alcotest reading. Since the court threw out the reading the State was only able to proceed on the observations that they made.
We were able to amend the charge to a careless driving with a 30 day loss of license instead of the 7 month loss which was the punishment at the time. Moreover, there were no DUI penalties and surcharges which accompany a DUI. Since that time the laws in the State of New Jersey have changed requiring ignition interlock depending on the severity of the reading.
Family Law Case
Client had not seen his 13 year old son in three years due to parental alienation by the child’s mother.
The Mom tried blocking the Dad’s phone number. The Dad lived out of State. Luckily the Dad was persistent, as was his counsel.
The Dad was awarded 4 weeks in the Summer and holiday parenting time after a contentious hearing.
