The purpose of an appeal is to handle misinterpretation or misapplication of the law by the trial court rather than to introduce new evidence.

Our lawyers’ knowledge of the intricacies of family law enables us to focus on the specific issues in a family case that may give rise to an appeal and to carry those issues through to conclusion.

With limited exceptions, a filing is required within 20 days of the trial court’s issuing an appealable decision, or the appeal will not be possible.  Thus, moving quickly is critical when considering an appeal where the result at trial has failed to meet legal requirements.
