When it comes to family law, John F. Schutz, P.L. is a full service firm. As Florida appellate attorneys, we will represent you through pre-suit settlement attempts, mediation, discovery, temporary relief hearings, trial and appeal. Our philosophy is that the appellate process is a necessary extension of the trial practice. When judges make mistakes, the Florida appellate court is designed to address those mistakes. Having Florida appellate attorneys who understand your situation from day one is critical to securing a favorable ruling.
For example, we have filed and received favorable rulings in multiple appeals to keep psychological and substance abuse treatment records from being turned over to a client’s spouse or the spouse’s lawyer. Trial courts emboldened with broad discretion have attempted to invade our client’s privileges and privacy. We have successfully appealed these erroneous decisions and maintained our client’s privacy.
