Virginia Appeals Lawyer
Even if your divorce, child custody case or juvenile court proceeding has been decided, it is not necessarily over. You may have grounds to appeal a ruling that was not in your favor to obtain a new hearing and re-state your case. Your adversary may be disappointed and desire a review of the legal principles involved.
If your right to appeal has been preserved with the filing of a timely notice of appeal, Fairfax attorney Raymond B. Benzinger is a skilled appellate lawyer who can take up your cause. He is thorough, detail-oriented and has practiced in divorce and family law in Northern Virginia for over 25 years.
Contact Mr. Benzinger today for an evaluation of your potential appeal. He represents clients whose cases were heard in circuit courts or juvenile and domestic relations courts of Fairfax County, Prince William County or Arlington County.
Do You Deserve a “Do-Over”?
Mr. Benzinger can readily identify issues that merit appeal, such as a judge’s specific ruling or evidence that was improperly allowed or excluded. He has successfully appealed a wide range of matters, including:
• Inequitable property division
• Calculation of child support
• Awarding of primary custody or sole custody
• Amount of visitation or restrictions
• Custodial parent relocation
• Juvenile dependency or delinquency
• Domestic violence protection orders
For any issue heard in juvenile and domestic court, the appeal is heard by a circuit court judge who can grant a de novo hearing to essentially try the case all over again. Circuit court decisions are reviewed by the Virginia Court of Appeals and, if necessary, the Virginia Supreme Court.
Raymond Benzinger has a successful appellate record at all levels. His broad experience in family law and honed courtroom skills enable him to gauge the chances of success and present effective written briefs and oral arguments.
