Oh my goodness, there have been so many over the years. Relatively recently, because a lot of my clients are referrals, I’ve had a client over the last two or three years who came to me for his divorce. And we fought an ugly custody battle at the temporary hearing and prevailed. And then we had mediation, and a trial, and many months later we had his divorce resolved. After the divorce, sadly, there were some post-divorce issues and his ex-wife filed to divide an asset that she claimed hadn’t been divided at the time of the divorce.

So I represented him through that – he came back to me – and we also won on appeal. So that’s rewarding to me, not only because we succeeded in what the client’s goals were, but I was also flattered that he came back to me for his legal matters.
