We Are Prepared For Unique Challenges
Appeals cases are very different from standard civil and criminal cases. In an appeal, you are not asking a judge or jury to determine guilt, wrongdoing or negligence, or the absence thereof. Instead, you are asking an appellate court to evaluate the decision of a judge or jury of a lower court.
As a result of the complicated legal standards, processes and research that appeals require, not all lawyers have the necessary skills to represent clients in the appellate court. However, our firm is confident in our ability to help you pursue an appeal.
With High Stakes, You Deserve Experienced Counsel
When you have been convicted of a crime, have lost your civil case in court or are being taken back to court on appeal, it is critical to hire a skilled appeals attorney. You only have one chance to appeal a decision to the court.
