*** Though that could be a JustifiedTrope - Greta's whole point is that it was a conniving, sneaky, dishosest lawyer like Fletcher who did this. We are hearing Greta's side (which presumably is the true one) but the lawyer may have convinced the judge of an entirely different story, through spin, character defamation and outright lies. (e.g. he could have argued that she invited the so-called burglar onto her roof, without warning him it had a weak spot, and left knives carelessly around the kitchen beneath the weak roof, and that the story about him being a burglar was all made up to try to get out of this suit. )

* PetTheDog: Audrey is understandably pissed at Fletcher for weaseling her into paying to get his car out of impound, but the moment he has his HeelRealization, she can't stay mad and consoles him with the knowledge that he's not a bad father when he's there with her and Max.

** Contracts with a minor are considered voidable, not ''void ab initio''. A minor who enters into a contract can choose to void it, but if she turns 18, she only has a limited window in which to declare the intention to void the contract. This window is usually six months -- for marriage in California, it is two years. Past this window, the contract is considered ratified and must be executed. Given Samantha Cole's age at the time of the divorce hearing, both her marriage AND the prenup should have been considered ratified. However, even if the marriage were valid but the prenup not, her husband clearly states that he "didn't know she was a minor!" At this point he could probably get an annulment on the grounds of fraud, reverting Samantha to status quo ante matrimonium - i.e., legally in possession of none of his wealth.

* VillainHasAPoint: In an interesting example, Fletcher realizes that ''he's'' the villain at the end, when he wins millions for his client through LoopholeAbuse. Putting aside the fact that this wouldn't work in real life (see HollywoodLaw, above), the fact remains this was a case of a rich, older guy marrying a 17-year-old girl (apparently thinking she was 18). She ''was'' too young to make an informed decision about either marriage or a pre-nup (and the case could arguably constitute statutory rape), so it's hard to feel especially bad for the guy.
