Although lower courts decide issues of first impression in many cases, rulings of the lower courts aren’t final. Plaintiffs and defendants often appeal and take cases to the Appellate Court (court of appeals) for various reasons, including errors in the lower court that result in an unsatisfactory outcome. Typically, you have the right to appeal after a case has been brought to completion at the trial-court level and all channels of review within that court have been exhausted.
Our Attorneys Are Experienced In Appellate Law
An attorney with experience in appellate law will effectively identify trial-court errors and frame them for the appeals court. When we take a case on appeal, our appellate lawyers carefully review the lower court record to determine which issues are the most promising to use to obtain relief upon appeal. Appellate attorneys then write and present detailed briefs that set forth a party’s position on appeal.
Our skilled attorneys have years of experience in appellate law, and have effectively litigated a wide variety of cases in various courts of appeal. We practice before the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court and several U.S. Courts of Appeals.
