Won my very difficult case - even the judge said it was one of the more difficult ones he had Terry Brown took on my divorce case which appeared to be a simple uncontested divorce as there was a pre-nuptial agreement. However, it quickly morphed into a complex contested divorce with out of state and international complications. The defendant was not a US citizen but did have permanent resident status. I had signed an immigrant sponsorship document that defense counsel attempted to use to claim alimony which would have reached into the six figures. Opposing council attempted to show that I was an abusive husband, even calling in DFACS to investigate (and spend hours searching my house). The pre-nuptial agreement was questioned and opposing council made a rigorous attempt to get this rejected by the court. The defendant would not supply all documents requested during discovery thus causing numerous problems and a trip to court to obtain these. Several issues and conflicts with the defendant’s income statements were found by Terry. Even with all these problems (and about 20 other minor issues) and a yearlong divorce, Terry won the case for me. The abuse issue was unfounded, DFACS refused to investigate farther as there was no evidence and conflicting information provided. The immigration sponsorship was not accepted, and the pre-nuptial agreement was. As Terry stated “what’s your’s is your’s and what’s mine is mine” turned out correctly. While it was a long, stressful divorce, the trial outcome was better that I expected based on the risk and exposure I had. I will recommend Terry for any type of divorce.
