Appeals - Criminal and Family Law

Appellate Lawyer in Baltimore, Maryland

Experienced Representation in Family Law and Criminal Appeals

If you have been involved in a family law or criminal matter, and have had an unfavorable ruling at trial, you may be able to file an appeal from the court's ruling. You want an experienced attorney to protect your interests, one who understands how the appeals process works, and who has successfully represented others in family law and criminal appeals.

At the office of Susan Kirwan, Attorney at Law, I have over 8 years of experience handling appellate work, including family law and criminal appeals. I provide the same level of personal service and attention to appellate clients that I provide in all other instances. I understand that every situation is different and take the time to learn the details of your case, so that I can prepare arguments that help you accomplish your specific goals. Contact my office online or call me at 410-244-1456 for an initial consultation.

My Appellate Practice

I focus my appeals work on:

  • Family law appeals. I represent parties in appeals involving decisions about children in need of assistance, as well as divorce or child custody appeals, and termination of parental rights. I also handle exceptions to issues adjudicated or determined at a master's hearing.
  • Criminal appeals. I handle a broad range of criminal appeals.
  • Administrative appeals. I advocate for clients in appeals before administrative agencies, including administrative law judges, as well as the Circuit Court.

When you hire me to handle your appeal, I will carefully examine the trial record to determine whether the court made any errors of law, including the improper admission or exclusion of evidence or the erroneous instructions of law to the jury. In appropriate situations, I may even challenge the law itself.

I will also exhaustively research the law governing your case, prepare and file a brief of the law with the court, and act as your advocate during oral arguments with the court of appeals.
