Doeren Mayhew was retained to prepare a damage analysis for a woman whose paramour refused to honor two separate agreements the pair had executed, resulting in a breach of contract. The two had lived together for nearly 20 years, during which the woman was promised lifetime financial support to sustain her lifestyle in exchange for business services performed for the defendant and his many companies. The plaintiff sued based on breach of an express contract.
Our litigation support professionals developed a detailed lifestyle analysis on the client’s behalf, delving into documents and digital files for significant financial documentation. Eventually the dispute turned into a two-week lawsuit trial that garnered significant media attention, including national coverage from ABC’s television news program “20/20.”
The plaintiff claimed that the defendant had breached oral agreements made in 1986 and 2000 by failing to pay her in accordance with the agreements in place. It was determined by the jury that the plaintiff of the lawsuit should be awarded a secure financial future, based largely on the evidence Doeren Mayhew’s litigation support professionals collected. As a result, our client was awarded monetary damages based in part on the financial information we compiled and presented in the lawsuit trial.
