Trial lawyers acquire facts and present them to a jury or judge. Appellate lawyers will comb through the case to analyze it and look for errors in the initial trial and review the laws applied and how they were interpreted. That is why oftentimes, trial attorneys do not handle their clients’ appellate cases.
After the Court Proceedings Have Come to an End, Did You Get a Fair Trial?

To ensure this we explain what is involved in an appeal at the initial meeting. Once retained to handle the appeal, an initial assessment of the issues in the case will be discussed. Following that discussion, immediate action will be taken to obtain and review all documents and transcripts to evaluate any and all possible issues for appeal, including those that were discussed at the initial meeting. An extensive review of the record is completed and legal research is conducted to reveal any potential appellate issues.
