Why Having an Experienced Appellate Lawyer Is Important

Family law appeals are very different than trial work. For example, an appeal does not involve simply rehashing points made at the trial level, and appellate briefs receive more judicial scrutiny than trial level briefs because as many as three to seven judges will read the brief. In short, the appeals process is a highly challenging and rewarding part of our practice.

If you have experienced a courtroom disaster and believe that an appeal is warranted, it is imperative that you have an experienced San Fernando Valley appeal lawyer analyze whether an appeal is actually the best approach and to ensure that you have followed the correct appellate procedures. If you have to defend a court's ruling, similar care must be followed.
