When A Family Law Decision Must Be Appealed

The family court system is composed of individuals who are highly experienced and competent. That being said, they are still human beings and therefore not infallible. Occasionally, when a family matter is left to the court to decide, there may be a legal error or other mistake which causes the court to render an inappropriate decision.

When a legal error negatively affects your family and finances, it's important to know that you have options and there are legal remedies available. At Elaine D. Smith-Koop, LLC, I apply more than 25 years of legal experience to represent clients through the appellate process in Oregon.
