Pierce v. Pierce is an unpublished Court of Appeals opinion from June 2021.  After Husband appealed an equitable distribution award, Wife retained me to (successfully) defend the appeal.

The primary issue on appeal was the valuation of Husband’s business property.  The Court of Appeals affirmed that the family court did not error in failing to qualify Husband’s appraiser (who primarily appraised residential real estate) as an expert.  It further affirmed that the family court could properly give greater weight to the opinion of Wife’s appraiser in valuing the commercial real estate.  Finally, the Court of Appeals affirmed that the family court had not made math errors in its equitable distribution award.
