The other day some acquaintances were in the garage at the Music Center across from the Stanley Mosk Superior Courthouse collecting VIN numbers on a couple of scoundrels. Seeing that I was dressed nice I decided to visit of all places Department 64 the home of one of most respected Superior Court Judges in Southern California and very likely the United States, The Honorable Mark Juhas. Note: my high school classmate, Noel, was his bailiff for years.
Moving along, as I got close, I could see they were all there, Lisa Helfend Meyer, Esq., Joe Mannis, Esq., Stephen Landau, Esq., Felicia Meyers, Esq, Michael Trope, Esq. and Max! This is a powerhouse of the DIVORCE lawyers in Los Angeles. The two groups were present for different matters and they soon parted to other locals at the Mosk, on a smaller scale similar to the parting of the Red Sea.
Another DIVORCE lawyer, who was present and will get no mention here, was seen off to the side. Damn, no longer the fat little guy but a rather thinner short guy. Still not looking very healthy but was none the less present, attempting to get a million dollars from opposing counsel, Nathalie E.A.Paluch, Esq, certified Family Law Specialist. Miss Paluch was not taking any crap from the thinner short guy and pretty much was on the attack. As it happened, I noticed this young lady immediately upon entering Dept. 64, as she was sitting in the jury box, coolly reviewing her notes while the rest of us were sitting in the cheap seats. The other thing I could not help but to notice was, of course, how well she was dressed, the shoes, and her handbag all nicely done! This was one well put together young lady. In my mind like a Laura, Lisa or Susan, classy!
The best part was Nathalies delivery. This is one DIVORCE lawyer to watch, folks. Having passed the BAR in 2012, she has all the credentials; UCLA, Pepperdine, L.A. District Attorney law clerk and how about this, Judicial Law Clerk for the Supreme Court of Uganda! And to make it even better, she speaks Hebrew, my kind of girl! Financial well-being of those she serves, that might be from Her mouth to Gods ears, dealing with who she is dealing with on this case. The million dollars being sought after is legal fees, likely from the spouse who has it to give aka Fat Cat Fees. All I can say is that if I am in town for that next hearing, I may well stop by.
It does seem that Huge Fee Awards are not as common as they once were in the good old days. The Wonderful World of Divorce has gotten tons of bad publicity as to what it does to those trying to Dump the Trash. Lets all wish both sides the very best of luck in their battle for the cash, $1,000,000.00 in fees, and I can almost assure you that this number is just some of what has been spent by the former love birds. In all fairness, and we are always fair on DESPERATEEXES.com, we do not know what the office of Miss Paluchs been paid, and that, too, I am sure, has been a kick in the nuts for some unfortunate litigant in the Wonderful World of Divorce!
