  • In custody case represented father on an appeal to the Superior Court from a lower court order transferring custody to the mother which would have allowed the mother to take the child out of the country.  After obtaining a stay of the lower court order, he obtained a reversal of the lower court order in the Superior Court and custody remained with father.
