Civil Litigation Lawyers Can Help You Appeal

Civil litigation lawyers can provide you with help during the process of appealing an unfavorable outcome. You can appeal both a verdict and a remedy or damage award, depending upon the particular circumstances of your case. And, in civil court proceedings, both a plaintiff or a defendant has the ability to appeal the outcome of a case, unlike in criminal proceedings where a defendant can appeal but a prosecutor can’t typically appeal a not guilty verdict because of the defendant’s constitutional protections.

If you appeal, you will need to argue that there was some problem with the application of the law or a problem with the way that the case was decided. The appeals court is deferential to the decisions of the lower court when it comes to questions related to the facts. This means that the appeals court does not substitute its own judgement for the decisions made by the jury on the facts, as long as there is a reasonable basis for the way that the jury decided.

The appeals court focuses on the technicalities of the case and the way the lower court judge ruled on issues. The instructions given to the jury in lower court proceedings can also matter in determining whether or not an appeal will be a successful one.

The process of appealing is different from the process of presenting your initial case, and the arguments that will need to be made on appeal can be very different than the way that you argued in your favor during the lower court proceedings. If you hope to maximize the chances of a successful appeal, you will need to make certain that you are represented by an attorney who understands how to successfully appeal cases.

Brown & Charbonneau, LLP has experience with the appeals process and can work closely with you to determine the likelihood you will prevail on appeal and to put together the strongest appeal possible to maximize your chances of the appeals court overturning an unfavorable lower court decision.
