Purpose of an Appeal

The purpose of an appeal is to ask a higher court to reverse the trial court’s decision. The appellate court will review the records and may hear oral arguments to determine if the trial judge made a legal error that affected the final decision. The appellate court will not accept new evidence or listen to new witnesses as an appeal is not a re-trial of your case.

Timing of the Appeal

As soon as you receive an adverse ruling, if an appeal is something you are considering, it is best to seek legal  advice immediately so you are aware of all important deadlines and are given the appropriate and necessary guidance along the way.
