Appeals

Our lawyers handle any appeals arising from our own cases, as well as cases in which the client was represented at trial by another firm or lawyer. An appeal can be pursued, if a client is unhappy with a decision made by a judge and believes that the judge made an error in the interpretation. There are tight time frames involved in filing an appeal, including deadlines for ordering the transcripts of the original trial. If you believe the judge made an error in your divorce or family law case, it is important to contact an experienced appellate lawyer as soon as possible.

Experienced Appellate Solicitors

Our lawyers will discuss with you the pros and cons of filing an appeal, and assist you in making a decision to move forward with an appeal. We will consider all of the evidence and facts of your case to determine if the judge has made a significant error. We have successfully appealed trial decisions on a wide range of issues, including child custody, division of property, including pension division, and maintenance orders.

We will draft a detailed factum outlining our argument for overturning the trial court’s decisions. A strong appeal not only requires an excellent written argument, but also an effective argument before the court. Appeals can be procedurally difficult, requiring an experienced lawyer who is familiar with the appellate process.
