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, Gordon & Simmons formulated a dual-headed strategy to not only stave off collection of the judgment, but also to satisfy the judgment. In the end, Gordon & Simmons 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.
