Gordon & Simmons Defends Clients in Large Judgment
A husband and wife came to Gordon & Simmons having spent the last seven (7) years defending against claims related to the sale of their former residence. Despite a long, tortured string of litigation, the clients were now at a critical juncture – they faced liability on a six-figure judgment which recently had been adjudged non-dischargeable by Bankruptcy, enforceable and collectible.
Despite this difficult posture, Jake Weddle formulated a dual-headed strategy to not only stave off collection of the judgment, but also to satisfy the judgment. In the end, Jake Weddle negotiated the complete satisfaction of liability for the six-figure judgment without the clients’ payment of any judgment principal, attorneys’ fees or costs. A fabulous turnaround, indeed.
