Judges are people too.
Sometimes they make mistakes.
If you think your judge made a mistake you have two choices:
- Live with it or
- Do something about it.
The way you "do something" about it is by filing an appeal.
Who Should You Hire?
An attorney with experience in trial courts and the appeals courts is a great choice!
The rules and procedures each court uses are different.
It's important to know the differences.
An attorney who handles cases in both courts is used to thinking about cases from both points of view.
I've won cases in the Court of Appeals. I can do it again!
Why Should I Appeal?
Because if you don't...you will have to live with the results of a decision you don't like!
That said, it also depends on the circumstances of your case. Sometimes judges apply the law wrong. Sometimes their decisions about the facts of a case are wrong. Sometimes they do both!
An experienced appeals attorney can help you decide if an appeal is worth pursuing!
