The law firm of Phoenix, Arizona real estate lawyer Kevin Harper was hired to defend a lawsuit brought by a spurned boyfriend, who claimed that his girlfriend had violated various terms of an oral agreement between the parties and stolen property belonging to him.
Among the claims was an allegation that he was entitled to an interest in certain real estate purchased by his girlfriend, notwithstanding the Statute of Frauds, which prohibits the enforcement of oral agreements related to real estate in many cases. After filing a Motion to Dismiss on the girlfriend's behalf, the parties ultimately settled the dispute in exchange for payment of a fraction of the amount originally sought.
