Stein Wins Family Law Trial — Jan 2014
Jonathan won a trial before the Indio Family Law Court. Jonathan represented the wife, who had been making substantial alimony payments and runs a property management company claimed as community property. Before trial, Jonathan obtained a separate judgment against the husband in Sonoma County Superior Court (over 500 miles away) and leveraged that judgment. The Indio Family Law Court judgment awarded no damages against the wife, despite 6-figure claims for past and future alimony; husband’s claims to the property management business; and his claims for breach of fiduciary duty owed by the wife. Husband recovered nothing on any of these claims.
