Husband Wins at Trial – Awarded 50% of Business Run By the Wife – January 2016
Martin + Colin, P.C. announces that it has won a trial court victory in Supreme Court, Westchester County, for the husband in a highly contested divorce. Throughout the case, the wife claimed that the very successful business started and operated during their long term marriage was entirely the result of her talent alone, without any contribution from the husband.

At trial, the wife was willing to make a nominal payment to the husband, but was unwilling to acknowledge he was a 50/50 partner deserving of a 50/50 split of the business.
