Appellate Advocacy

Unfortunately, trial courts are fallible. Under our legal system, every litigant is entitled to have any decision made by any trial count reviewed by a higher court to ensure that decision complied with the law and that the litigants were treated fairly.

If you were the subject of an adverse ruling or you prevailed in court and your opponent has raised an appeal, you are going to need an appellate advocate. An appeal means that either you or your opponent has disagreed with the final ruling and want to proceed with another trial. This process is specialized. The appellate advocate must have both a thorough understanding of highly technical appellate procedure and the ability to make legal arguments in a way that will convince an appellate court. The skills that are required to succeed are significantly different from those required in trial court litigation. As the litigator, it is our job to ensure all of the facts are apparent and make sure the judge sees how wrong the previous judgement was. Our litigators have represented clients in appeals in both federal and state appellate courts throughout the country on matters ranging from patent litigation to probate disputes. The Burton Law Firm has the specialized skills needed to prevail on your appeal.
