Unfortunately, not every family law matter results in a positive outcome the first time around. If you are unsatisfied with the results you received, you should know that you have options. Filing a post-trial motion or appeal may help you achieve the results you seek.
At Ritchie, Soper & Schutt, LLC, with offices in St. Joseph, Liberty or Columbia, Missouri, we often handle family law appeals on behalf of people throughout Western Missouri. Many of the cases we accept come to us as referrals from other attorneys.
Unlike preparing a case for family court, preparing an appeal involves a separate set of skills. It often requires a thorough review of trial court records. It requires knowledge of the law, the ability to perform the necessary research, and perhaps most importantly, good writing skills. Mr. Ritchie served as an editor of the University of Missouri School of Law’s Missouri Law Review where two of his articles were published.
His partner, Jennifer Soper, is also an experienced researcher and writer. Both Mr. Ritchie and Ms. Soper have served as adjunct professors at Missouri Western State University, teaching Family Law to students majoring in Legal Studies.
