What To Do After a Ruling
Our attorneys at ASG Legal have extensive experience in handling all types of civil and criminal appeals in the Florida Supreme Court, the Florida District Courts, and the United States Court of Appeal for the 11th Circuit. If you are unhappy about a ruling or a verdict you have received from a Florida court, or you have had less than full satisfaction, it is time to contact one of our appeals lawyers.
Appeals can be based on any decision. It does not matter if it was settled by a jury or a judge, you have the right to appeal the verdict. This also applies to final judgements of divorce, personal injury judgements, criminal convictions, and any other trial decision. These are serious outcomes which will affect you for the rest of your life, and sorting through all the civil appeals attorneys and criminal appeals lawyers can be difficult.
That is why hiring an appellate attorney should never be taken lightly. Appeals always involve significant research, strategy, and case development. Any appeal will be based on these factors, and a great amount of time will be undertaken by your appeals lawyer to present your case to the appellate court for review.
ASG Legal as your Appeals Lawyer
You must first understand what an appeal is. This is not an opportunity to retry your case before a judge. Appellate courts only review the decisions of trial courts using a specific legal standard.
New evidence is not allowed. Every appellate court reviews only the evidence that has been presented at trial to determine if that verdict was supported, both legally and factually.
You may think you have good reason to appeal a verdict or a decision. You may not. Only a qualified appellate attorney can help determine whether or not you should file an appeal. This will be based on the evidence presented and the extent to which your appeals attorney knows their way around appellate issues. Only such an attorney can guide you through the appellate process.
How Can Your Appellate Attorney Help You?
At ASG Legal, we realize that preparation for any appeal begins long before your trial is over. Framing legal issues at trial, in other words, your attorney’s objections raised, drafting pleadings, and offering jury instructions, are vital to your chances of succeeding at the appellate level.
If you are still involved in the trial process, we can provide the counsel you deserve, to ensure that issues are properly preserved for a potential appeal if you choose to move forward that way. Not all civil appeals attorneys and criminal appeals lawyers are willing to put in the extra work for you. At ASG, we are.
For those where a verdict or a decision has already been determined, our appellate attorneys stand ready to help you determine if an appeal is feasible. You want the appellate court to determine that the trial court misapplied the law, or that the trial court could not have reached the decision it reached without abusing its responsibility to interpret the facts as they were presented.
How to be Successful on Appeal
At ASG Legal, we know that success on appeal requires great attention to detail as well as the ability to explain complex matters precisely and persuasively. Only experienced appeals lawyers understand all of the necessary research that goes into such an endeavor, as well as properly preserving issues at the trial court level. Many appeals are successful when a clear and concise argument is submitted in writing. If needed, your appellate lawyer will professionally argue your case before the bench.
Our appellate lawyers in Okaloosa County have the experience to help you at every stage of your appeals process. Together, we will work to find you the best options for your future.
