Oklahoma City Appellate Attorneys
In addition to family law appeals, we handle cases in all areas of civil appellate practice. Our attorneys provide experienced representation for appellate issues and can help you with your appellate case.
You may appeal a decision that you feel was incorrect if certain procedural steps are followed. It is important to take timely legal action to address an issue that you wish to appeal. In Oklahoma, an appeal must be filed within 30 days of rendition of the final judgment.
Appealing court decisions on divorce, property division or child custody matters is a complicated task. Our skilled family law attorneys can guide you through the appellate process and seek a better result for you.
Decisions may be reversed if you believe the trial judge abused discretion or made an error of law. To file an appeal, it is important to have a reason besides just not liking what the judge decided on your case.
In divorce cases, judges have broad discretion, and it can be difficult to reverse a trial judge’s decision through appellate court. We begin by completing a petition in error to start the appeal process. This provides an opportunity for the appellate court to reconsider evidence that could more favorably present your case.
If you feel representation from a former lawyer was less than you would have liked to receive, we can provide you with a second opinion about your case. Our knowledgeable attorneys can review what happened and identify your options, including the possibility of an appeal to address the matter.
