We know that marriages are something difficult and reaching to the point of extreme situations in the couple can happen to everyone because we are human beings. Celebrities are not out of this equation either.
Do not believe that because they have money, beauty, and because they pretend that everything is fine, they will not have their problems. That is why Hollywood has seen cases of powerful couples who ended up divorced with more than $50 million at stake.
But who are the bright minds behind these multi-million dollar cases? Here some trial lawyers who have been involved in cases of juicy divorces:
Sorrell Trope is a lawyer who works for Trope and Trope. Among his client portfolio are Britney Spears, Nicole Kidman, Hugh Grant and, Nicolas Cage. He’s in this list because he was the one who represented Elin Nordegren, former wife of Tiger Woods, during her divorce.
This was a controversial divorce due to Tiger’s infidelity scandal, which made them more visible. In the case, Elin earned $ 100 million from Tiger’s $ 600 million fortune, in addition to a sum of $ 20,000 a month so she would not speak tothe press about their relationship or what happened. Thanks, Trope.
Fiona Shackleton is a lawyer who represented Sir Paul Mccartney in the divorce trial against his ex-wife Heather Mills. She is a tenacious lawyer, so much, that during the trial, Heather threw water at her lawyer, because her demand was for $250 million, and ended up receiving $ 48million, all thanks to Fiona.
In addition, in her client portfolio has represented characters of the royal family such as Prince Charles alongside other celebtities.
Dennis Wasser is a lawyer who represented Melissa Mathison, Harrison Ford’s ex-wife, during the divorce process. Harrison must be very afraid of Dennis because thanks to him, his ex was left with $ 118 million and future royalties obtained by the movies that he appeared in, like all of Indiana Jones and Air Force One.
Donald Schiller was the lawyer who represented Juanita Jordan (Vanoy) in the divorce trial against Michael Jordan, with whom he was married for 18 years. Thanks to Donald’s skills, Michael had to pay $ 168 million to Juanita, in addition to obtaining a farm that Michael had in Chicago and full custody of the 3 children. Poor Michael.
So, if you have a complicated marriage, and you did not sign any prenuptial agreement, you definitely know how it would end. We recommend watching out for good lawyers, as you have to take more care of the lawyers who will represent your ex. If you don’t, you could end up on the losing end.
