Family Law Appeals

Well Versed in the Skills of Appellate Advocacy

Appeal Lawyers

When one of the parties is dissatisfied with a  trial court ruling, that party can appeal the decision to the appellate court, asking that court to review the case and reverse the decision.

The legal skills necessary to handle an appeal are much different than those skills used at the trial court. Your appellate attorney must be able to negotiate the very complex rules of the appellate court and excel at legal research and writing. Few lawyers practicing in the trial court have the skills required to handle an appeal.
