* DiabolusExMachina: Instigated by Fletcher himself, no less. His last-minute discovery that Mrs. Cole [[spoiler:was underaged when she got married, invalidating her pre-nup but leaving the common-law marriage intact]] ends up unduly costing an innocent man half his assets. We might say it could cost a loving father custody of his children too, but Mrs. Cole had already demonstrated herself in court to be an unfaithful wife and an absolutely ''horrible'' mother, so at least she likely won't get full or even partial custody without Fletcher representing her anymore. Plus, the husband could always appeal against the decision given the point about the pre nup being voidable but not void. After Mrs. Cole turned 18, she had a limited amount of time to render the contract void but she never did, so the pre nup and marriage are valid and the judge's ruling erred from the law. The husband would get his assets back having proved adultery and could use the money as leverage for joint custody or even sole custody for himself.

* WomensMysteries: Inverted - Fletcher uses men's mysteries to get a recess in the court, citing a link between a full bladder and male prostate issues and counting on the judge not knowing whether this is medically accurate or not. PlayedForLaughs when the judge asks if that's true (to which a bewildered - and still forced to tell the truth - Fletcher responds, "It must be").

** Though the sad truth is custody cases tend to favor the mother even if the father is more suitable. All Samantha needs is another lawyer like Fletcher (it wouldn't be that hard) and she could have the judge's sympathy.
** Though the husband could always appeal against the decision given the point about the pre nup being voidable but not void. After Mrs Cole turned 18 she had a limited amount of time to render the contract void but she never did so the pre nup and marriage are valid and the judge's ruling erred from the law.

As for getting a lawyer like Fletcher if you can't pay them then they are unlikely to take your case.
