AWARD WINNING LAW FIRM IN AUSTIN, TX
Family Law Appeals
Texas Divorce Appeals, Custody Appeals, and Child Support Appeals
Occasionally, a party will seek relief from an unfavorable ruling by a trial judge by appealing the judge's ruling to one of the 14 Courts of Appeal located across the state or to the Supreme Court of Texas. The appellate court does not conduct a new trial, but reviews the trial court's ruling based on the clerk's record, the court reporter's record and written briefs prepared by attorneys.
Experienced Civil Appellate Attorney
For more than 30 years, attorney Jimmy Vaught has presented individuals in civil appeals before the Courts of Appeal and the Texas Supreme Court involving a diverse range of issues, including divorce/dissolution, child custody, child support, and other contested family law matters.
Jimmy Vaught is a board-certified family law and civil appellate attorney by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. In addition, he has a unique insight into the appellate and decision-making process, having served as a briefing attorney for Justice Robert M. Campbell from 1980-1981 and as the staff attorney for Justice Jack Hightower from 1989-1995 on the Supreme Court of Texas.
At the Vaught Law Firm, we attempt to resolve disputes by agreement when possible to save clients the time, stress and cost of protracted litigation.

In the event a trial court issues a decision unfavorable to a client, Jimmy Vaught is a skilled appellate attorney who is prepared to fight tirelessly for the protection of a client's rights. Jimmy Vaught handles family law appeals throughout Texas.
In addition to representing our clients in divorce and family law appeals, we often represent clients in appeals cases where we were not the original lawyer at the time of trial or contested hearing.
