How Does The Appeal Process Work?

An appeal is a legal process where the appellate court is asked to review an order from the lower court to determine if any legal errors were made. Errors can come from a trial court's rulings on evidence, jury instructions and rulings on pretrial motions.

We Are A Trusted Appellate Law Resource

The purpose of the appellate court is to specifically address those errors made by the trial court, to explain the errors, and to rule whether there is a need for any additional proceedings. Appeals differ from ordinary cases in the narrow focus of argument. Appeals are argued based on written briefs and possibly an oral argument, without the presentation of a single new witness.

We have the experience needed to plan and execute an effective appellate strategy on behalf of our clients in any of the following courts:

  • Florida District Court of Appeals
  • 11th Circuit Court of Appeals

In each case, the firm takes special care to know about the client's business, organization and situation thoroughly. Michael L. Feinstein's work has resulted in numerous precedent-setting decisions in Florida.
