PRACTICE AREAS | APPEALS
Sometimes, a trial is only the first step along the path toward your ultimate goal. After a trial is over, the losing party often has the right to appeal the result to a higher court. Before and during a trial, your attorney’s primary job is to gather and present evidence in a way that gives you the best chance to convince a judge or jury that your position is correct. On appeal, the focus changes. Instead of hearing evidence and testimony, the appeals court examines the legal process and legal rulings made by the trial court to determine whether there were legal errors that might have affected the outcome. Successfully prosecuting or defending an appeal requires representation by an attorney who understands the unique issues that matter to appellate courts.
