Law v. Law is an unpublished February 2004 opinion from the South Carolina Court of Appeals. I ghost wrote the reply brief for Ms. Law.

This was a change of custody case in which the family court had changed custody from Ms. Law to her ex-husband, granted her standard visitation, and required her to pay $23,469.79 of Mr. Law’s attorney’s fees.  The family court noted three reasons for changing custody.   On appeal we were able to convince the Court of Appeals that two of these three reasons were in error but were unable to convince the court that the third reason was also erroneous.  Thus, it left custody with Mr. Law.  However it determined that the lower court erred in only awarding Ms. Law standard visitation and remanded the matter back to the family court for an award of additional visitation.  The Court of Appeals further reversed and remanded the award of attorney’s fees to Mr. Law.
