Experienced Family Law Appellate Representation
If you believe that the judge handling your case made errors or mistakes, you can appeal the court’s decision. An appeal involves a higher court reviewing your case to determine if legal errors affected the outcome of the case. When there are grounds for an appeal, I can help you appeal a decision for your family law case. Your right to appeal is time sensitive, and in most cases must be filed within 30 days of the order or final judgment that you want appealed.
My name is Gary Urso, and I have more than 27 years of experience handling family law cases. I am an experienced litigator who is licensed to practice in Florida. If you want an experienced attorney to appeal your case, please call my New Port Richey office at 727-847-7808 for a phone consultation.
What Happens When You Appeal a Case?
During an appeal, a higher court (the appellate court) will review the record from your trial court case. Each side has an opportunity to submit an argument in the form of briefs that contain the argument and case law supporting the arguments. The appellate process involves mistakes or errors by the trial court either during trial or in the order or final judgment. It is important to note that an appeal is not a new trial, and it does not include new information about your case.
My job during an appeal is to prepare the briefs, submit it to the appellate court and, if necessary, present oral argument to the court. Appellate work requires an attorney to research and write the necessary briefs and arguments to be submitted to the court.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to contact a lawyer. The filing deadline for family law appeals is 30 days from the date of the original court decision.
