Selecting the right appeal lawyer is often the key to winning on appeal. As you proceed in your selection, our appeals attorneys offer the following suggestions for your consideration:
When a case is heard in trial court, the judge or jury weighs the evidence presented and assesses the credibility of witnesses. As a case reaches the appellate court level, factual issues and witness credibility are usually no longer considered. With limited exception, the arguments that are made in a court of appeals must also have been addressed in the trial court. An appeal focuses primarily on the correct interpretation and application of the law. For this reason, an appeal must make a compelling case that the trial court made an error of law and that the law is on your side.
