Cases And verdicts


Won Cancellation of Removal for lawful permanent resident with complicated criminal history including theft charges. May 2012


Mom came to me through Gwinnett Pro Bono project and she was referred for a modification of custody. Dad stopped paying child support because of an incorrect interpretation of the child support statute as stated in their settlement agreement and divorce decree. I filed a Contempt action and obtained a judgment against Dad for the full amount of arrearages for almost 1 year and required that he pay the arrearages over 10 months in addition to regular child support payments. May 2012.


After a 2 day custody trial parents of a 13 yr old boy and 12 year old girl walk away with each having custody of one child. I represented the mother in that trial and defended her against allegations of neglect and abuse. The Judge ruled to have the boy continue to live with Dad and the girl continue to live with Mom as they had for the last two years. That was a sound decision taken as a win for my client because the guardian ad litem recommended a change in custody.
