Farris Partner Karen Shirley-Paterson Pleased with Settlement

As one of the lawyers for Francesco Aquilini, Karen Shirley-Paterson is pleased with the resolution achieved on behalf of her client, and the final court approved settlement. “Mr. Aquilini’s first concern has always been protecting the children and this settlement does that,” she said. While many factors played into the decision to settle the case, Ms. Shirley-Paterson acknowledges that the parties’ negotiated agreement avoids the need for a lengthy and complex trial, and intense media scrutiny.
