On April 3, 2017 Frank Donahue, Esq. and Alex Miller, Esq. obtained an affirmance of a Morris County trial court decision, granting their client a Final Restraining Order (FRO). Specifically in C.L. v. R.L. (No. A-5739-14T4), the Appellate Division found that the entry of the FRO after an eight-day trial based on the finding of harassment was appropriate given the trial testimony and findings of the trial judge. In addition, the Appellate Division affirmed the attorney fee award of $45,972.54 to Donahue Hagan Klein & Weisberg, representing fees incurred by Mr. Donahue’s client during the domestic violence hearing.
In the case of C.B. v. K.B.K. (No. A-1643-16T3), Mr. Donahue again succeeded at the appellate level, receiving another affirmance of a trial decision for his client. In this matter, the trial court upheld the validity of an Antenuptial Agreement after conducting a plenary hearing, and also awarded Mr. Donahue’s client $10,274.50 in counsel fees at the time of the divorce trial in connection with the adversary’s unsuccessful challenge of the Agreement.
