The trial verdict is not always the final outcome of a lawsuit. Appeals can be made by either side. If you won your lawsuit you may face a pending an appeal or you may choose to appeal if you believe the jury award was too low. If you did not win, an appeal may be your only opportunity for a second chance.
We recognize appeals are not always appropriate in every situation, and we will provide candid advice about your chances for success. Sometimes an appeal is your only option. Other times the other side appeals and you have no choice but to fight them again.

Choosing the Right Attorney
Choosing the right attorney is crucial to winning on appeal. The rules and procedures are very different from trial, and your attorney must excel in many areas where experienced trial attorneys may fail. Appeals require the ability to analyze complex issues, recall a large set of facts, have intimate knowledge of controlling law, write first class documents for the court to review, and have an in-depth knowledge of the rules that apply in your case.
