Portland Family Law Attorneys- Should I appeal my case?

September 15th, 2014

All Oregonians have the right to appeal any ruling they deem unfair, however, just because the citizen deems it unfair, does not guarantee that the appeal would be successful.

Sometimes in extremely complex family law matters, judges do make mistakes, or legal errors are made which lead to an improper ruling.  If this is the case, and you’re ready to make an appeal, you need an extremely experienced attorney on your side.

Ronald Johnston has over 30 years of experience challenging family law judgments in Oregon.  Regardless of the type of family law issue you are trying to appeal, Johnston has the experience to represent you.

All of these issues can be challenged through the appeals process, and more often than not, they will be filed with the Oregon Court of Appeals.

One thing all people interested in appealing their case need to know is that the Oregon Court of Appeals have a strong tendency to uphold the decision made by the trial judge.  The only times that the rulings are overturned are when there have been legal errors or an absence of facts to support a ruling.

If you would like to talk to someone about your chances of winning an appeal in your family law case, definitely make an appointment with Ronald Johnston.
