In the overwhelming majority of cases we are able to help the parties reach amicable resolution of custody issues. That ability is enhanced by our demonstrated record of fighting for the best interests of the children in those rare cases where our client’s spouse will not be reasonable. One example is the landmark case Fenslage v. Dawkins. We represented a woman of limited financial means against her wealthy in-laws. Even after our client won custody, her ex-husband refused to abide by the jury’s decision. He absconded with the children and went into hiding. When traditional law enforcement failed to apprehend him, we made aggressive use of litigation discovery to establish that the ex-husband’s parents and siblings were aiding his flight and facilitating his continued concealment. After we obtained and collected on a judgment against every family member who participated, the children were returned to our client.
