Perhaps no area of the law can prove as difficult for the parties or the judge as Family Law.  The Shannin Law Firm is proud to provide appellate assistance to family lawyers and their clients throughout Florida. I have handled appeals involving child custody, alimony, child support, paternity, and other issues particular to the family law arena.  These cases are often complex and require a level of delicate handling to ensure that the legal issues are properly presented, not just restating facts in an argumentative manner.  Hiring a Board Certified Appellate Attorney can be uniquely beneficial to presenting these family law issues to maximize the opportunity to get the proper result on appeal.
