Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be glad to assist you.
Were you acting Pro Se before and at this hearing ?
Is that the same as I know as in pro per? If so, yes.
Thank you for your reply,
Yes, "Pro Se" is the same as "Pro Per".
The Rules of Civil Procedure are equally applicable to attorneys and litigants representing themselves. I would have said to file a Motion for Retrial or a Motion for Reconsideration of the attorneys' fees issue, but since it would be going before the same Judge, it would be a waste of time. Your best course of action are doing 2 things; first, you can appeal the Judge's decision; and, second, you should report the attorney to the Arizona Attorney Disciplinary Board at the State Bar of Arizona, for lying under oath and here is the link:

Where do I file the appeal? With the Supreme Court?
In which Court was this hearing held ?
Maricopa County Superior Court
You would file an Appeal with the Court of Appeals. I am providing a link to the Rules of Procedure governing Appeals:
I should probably hire an attorney if I wish to proceed with the appeal process?
I think it would be a good idea and not because I am an Attorney. There are so many time periods within which something has too be filed that it would be a shame to lose a perfectly good Appeal because you missed filing something within the time allotted,
