Family Law Appeals Attorney
The Law Offices of Jeff T. Gorman, provides legal representation to those needing assistance in a wide-range of family law appeal cases, including:
Florida Appellate Law
Our actions as Florida appellate lawyers are governed by the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure. We use our extensive knowledge of these rules to achieve the best possible outcome for each of our clients. We practice before all five district courts of appeal in Florida, as well as the Florida Supreme Court.
An order or judgment can be challenged on appeal for several reasons. To be reversible, the legal error must be prejudicial, i.e., it must have adversely affected the outcome of the case. Grounds for reversal can include legally insufficient evidence, misapplication/misinterpretation of the correct legal standards, procedural/substantive errors of law, constitutional violations, and other legal grounds depending on the facts and circumstances of each individual case.
Federal Appellate Law
The House Judiciary Committee establishes the Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure, which we often must use in conjunction with the local rules of the federal circuit courts of appeal. We have extensive experience before the federal district courts and circuit courts of appeal, including the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals, the governing federal circuit for Florida.
Complex Civil Litigation
We always seek the most direct path to a favorable outcome for our clients. Some cases can be resolved before trial or during trial – purely as a matter of law. This can occur by way of a dismissal, summary judgment, judgment on the pleadings, directed verdict, and various other legal resolutions. The legal grounds raised at the trial level can be a basis for reversal or affirmance on appeal.
There are also many post-trial remedies available to protect a client, which may render an appeal unnecessary, or at a minimum make a record for an appeal. Examples of post-trial proceedings are:
