Walsh LLP is a full-service Calgary law firm. Our lawyers argue cases not only at the trial level, but also in the Alberta Court of Appeal. We handle appeal work on behalf of clients whom we have represented throughout their cases' progression in the courts, as well as those who are referred to us by other lawyers.
We do appeals work in all our areas of practice, including family law.
Role Of Appellate Counsel
The Alberta Court of Appeal hears appeals on cases from Alberta's administrative tribunals, Provincial Court and the Court of Queen's Bench. At this level, lawyers are not simply re-arguing the case in front of a new set of judges. The issues at stake are different and require lawyers to have a specific set of advocacy skills to succeed on behalf of their clients. As experienced litigators, we welcome the opportunity not only to advocate for our clients, but also to assist the court in creating new law.
Issues In Family Law Appeals
Few law firms in Alberta do appeals work in family law cases; Walsh LLP is among the firms that do. Some of the many family law issues that may go to the appeals level in Alberta are:
- Child custody and access
- Family violence
- Spousal support
- Child relocation
- Challenge to prenuptial or cohabitation agreements
As a solution-focused law firm, we have the capacity of legal talent to offer a full range of options to our clients. While this often includes alternative dispute resolution options, we are also effective litigators at the trial and appeals level. When you want a dedicated advocate through all levels of your case, Walsh LLP will represent you.
