Kristine Ann Cummings
Kristine is a skilled litigator and has extensive courtroom and trial experience. In a notable matter, Kristine won a favorable decision, on behalf of a wife, in a bifurcated divorce trial concerning the enforceability of a prenuptial agreement. After a two-day trial, the judge ruled that the prenuptial agreement entered into by the parties was not valid and would not be enforced by the court. Following a third day of trial on the issues of property division and support, the court awarded the wife a substantial lump-sum payment and ordered the husband to pay alimony and child support. This favorable decision resulted in long-term financial security for the client and her two year old son.
