Appeal and Post-Judgment Services

In litigation, cases don't always turn out the way you or your ex-spouse expected.  As a result, appeals and post-judgment motions are sometimes filed to challenge the Trial Court's ruling. 

Pennington & Smith has the training, knowledge and experience to handle any post-judgment motion or appeal regarding your family case.

Appeals are complicated matters not to be taken lightly.  They require a keen understanding of and a strict adherence  to the Rules of Appellate Procedure. Appeals also require a great deal of work including preparation of the record of the trial court proceedings, legal briefs and research.

Many times cases have to be argued in person before the NC Court of Appeals or  Supreme Court.  Our attorneys have sucessfully argued before both Courts.  We have handled a number of appeals and post-judgments motions and proceedings.  We are skilled and knowledgeable in the rules and law governing appeals.

If you are not happy with your trial result or your ex-spouse has filed an appeal or post-judgment motion, contact us for a consultation.  We will advise you about the law, the probability of success, an estimate as to cost and how you should proceed.
