Payne & Fears LLP Wins Bench Trial Involving Fraudulent Transfer of Real Property

After Payne & Fears LLP litigation attorneys obtained a substantial judgment for a client and during a subsequent appeal, the opposing parties attempted to fraudulently convey the real property which was the subject of the litigation in order to avoid paying the judgment.  Payne & Fears filed a creditor’s claim to secure the judgment and to set aside the fraudulent conveyance.  Following a bench trial, the judge found for Payne & Fears’ clients on all counts, and ordered the attempted transfer set aside and the property sold to satisfy the judgment in favor of its clients, which will soon total over $1.2 million dollars.  Daniel M. Livingston represented the victorious clients in the jury trial, the appeal and the later bench trial.
