Even though an appeal is an extension of litigation, it is much different than a trial and requires a specific skill set. A trial lawyer may know how to skillfully lead a jury to understand your case, but an appellate lawyer knows how to present a case to judges.

This process is fully dependent on the filings and documentation presented by the attorney handling the case. The appellate court then begins to look for errors made by the last judge who looked at the case. Should this evidence have been admitted? Was the court trial right to dismiss half the counts before trial? Did the trial court give an incorrect jury instruction?

It can be a complex process but often times filing for an appeal is the right move for the individual or the company.

A good appeal lawyer should have the following skill set:

  • Have a history of appellate court
  • Be meticulous in legal research
  • Be skilled in legal writing
  • Have the ability to clearly communicate what was missed in the initial lawsuit.
