The biography of Marilee’s lead attorney, Stephaine, also boasts of her notable experience in “representing high net worth individuals in contentious and uncontested spousal lawsuits and child-related matters,” the source reported. Speaking about the challenges of the case, Stephanie said her primary focus remains on the best interest of Marilee and Holmes’ nine-year-old daughter. “During the holiday season and in the face of challenging times, Marilee has focused solely on the welfare of her nine-year-old daughter.”
Stephanie added that she worked with Holmes’ attorney, Robert H. Moses of Moses Ziegelman Richards & Notaro, LLP, to discreetly reach a settlement. Robert H. Moses was named New York City Attorney of the Year in Best Lawyers: The Family Law Issue 2023 in December 2022. “To that end, TJ’s attorney and I have worked together to move forward with her divorce privately, expeditiously, and as amicably as possible,” she said.
“Nonetheless, we remain disappointed by TJ’s lack of discretion, respect and sensitivity towards Marilee and the party’s daughter.” She concluded, “Marilee has been touched by the outpouring of support and looks forward to a fresh start in this new year.”
