Two Family Law Wins for Appellate Practice Team; Parental Rights and Separate Property Awards at Issue

June 30, 2019

The DPBC Appellate Practice Team has seen two recent victories on appeal in family law matters. In one case, a mother’s equal parental rights were preserved when the Court of Appeals determined that the trial court had abused its discretion in reducing the mother’s parenting time and decision-making authority. DPBC’s Donald Capparella was retained to represent the mother on appeal; he was assisted on the brief by associate Kimberly Macdonald. You can read the full opinion here.

In the other recent case, Dodson Parker attorneys had successfully argued at trial that the appreciation in value of certain stock shares that had been given to a husband by his father was not marital property subject to division by the court. The Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court’s determination. The opinion in that case can be found here.
