Family Law Appeals

RaquinMercer LLC Attorneys

Many attorneys handle family law cases in Maryland’s trial courts – but only a few handle family law appellate work with distinction. Appellate work requires a different set of skills. At RaquinMercer, we recognize the vital role of the direct appeal in a client’s family law case. An effective family law appeal requires rigorous analysis of the trial record, thorough legal research, and persuasive written and oral arguments.

RaquinMercer approaches family law appeals from the focused perspective of an appellate team. Our appellate experience allows us to dissect the trial court record to identify legal and factual error. Our appellate team evaluates the questions to present on multiple levels to prioritize the arguments that have the best chance of success. Our family law appellate process combines the best legal issues in your case with the most compelling way of telling your story.
