YOU HAVE WON OR LOST YOUR CASE AT THE TRIAL COURT, NOW WHAT?
Whether you have won or lost your case, you should not assume that the trial lawyer will be the best person to represent you on appeal. It is imperative that you obtain skilled appellate counsel to represent you in the appellate courts. Appeals are unlike other forms of litigation. Your appellate counsel requires a distinct skill set including critical legal analysis, legal writing and effective appellate argument abilities.
WHAT HAPPENS IN AN APPEAL?
A civil judgment is legally presumed to be correct. To overturn a judgment a party requires an experienced appellate lawyer to skillfully craft compelling arguments to demonstrate that the judgment is wrong.
Typically, such arguments focus on:
- An error of law
- Insufficient or improperly admitted evidence
- Procedure deficiencies at trial or rulings leading up to trial
Conversely, a judgment can be affirmed through skillful use of standards of review which, often times, give deference to a trial judge’s discretion.
Regardless of which side you are on, the unique facts of your case could also influence the end result. You need an appellate lawyer who can present a compelling argument, seamlessly blending the facts of your case and the law, to provide you the best chance for a successful outcome on appeal.
