We represented a client where a prenuptial agreement entered into many years before the decedent’s death was being challenged by the decedent’s surviving spouse. If the surviving spouse had prevailed, she could have had the right to a substantial recovery against her deceased husband’s estate, even though she freely entered into a prenuptial agreement decades before. We researched the matter thoroughly and determined that we had a good case, and we filed exceptional pleadings and made a compelling argument to the Court and the Court ruled in our favor. We have decades of experience obtaining exceptional results for clients in regard to wide variety of legal matters including, but not limited to, family law, divorce, prenuptial agreements, estate law and defending claims against estates.
