Appeals: State & Federal

When a family law case has ended with an unfavorable result or a result that a party believes is not in the interests of justice, it may be possible to appeal the ruling. From the very beginning of your appeal, our attorneys at Rogers, Kamm & Shea offer thorough evaluations of the case and give clients straightforward advice on the chances of a successful appeal.

Attorney Helen Sfikas Rogers has handled more than 80 appeals in state and federal courts, obtaining many reported verdicts, and the other lawyers at our firm also have substantial appellate experience.

Many family law lawyers do not handle appeals. Our firm prides itself on our abilities to handle family law appeals on behalf of our clients in Nashville, Tennessee, and the surrounding communities. Whether we handled your initial family law matter or have become involved with your case to specifically handle the appeal, our firm can tailor our services to meet your specific needs and goals. Contact us today to schedule an appointment with one of our experienced Tennessee appellate attorneys.

The Appeals Process

In a family law appeals case, the process begins with the filing of a notice of appeal. We conduct an extensive review of the trial record and all evidence presented, in addition to the findings of the lower court, in order to identify any issues that may be grounds for an appeal. We then thoroughly research the law involved and draft a compelling appellate brief. Our attorneys can then prepare and present a persuasive oral argument before a panel of appellate judges.

We represent clients who wish to seek appeals in all types of family law and divorce matters, including:

  • Property division
  • Spousal support (alimony)
  • Child support
  • Child custody and visitation
  • Paternity and paternity fraud
