General Information on Appeals
Filing an appeal can be a complicated legal undertaking. After an unsuccessful result at trial, the evaluation criteria to determine the viability of an appeal is wholly different than the criteria used to evaluate the viability of the underlying case. Appellate legal standards dictate the types of issues and evidence that can be raised on appeal. Defending against an appeal also involves a fundamentally different analysis of the case than the trial preparation. Regardless of your position in the appellate process, an appeal is bound by the record at trial and as such preserving the record at trial is of the utmost concern.
