Experienced Civil Appeals Lawyer

What is a Civil Appeals Attorney?

A civil appeals lawyer is an attorney who focuses on handling civil appeals cases.

In most civil appeals cases, the lawyer will represent the party who lost in the lower court. The civil appeals lawyer will review the lower court’s ruling and argue that the ruling was incorrect. This can be done through a written brief or oral argument.

If the civil appeals court agrees with the civil appeals lawyer, it can reverse the lower court’s ruling. This can have a major impact on the outcome of the case. Therefore, it is important to choose a lawyer who is experienced and knowledgeable in appeals.

What are My Chances of Winning an Appeal?

If you’re considering an appeal, you’ll want to know your chances of success. The answer, unfortunately, is that it depends on a number of factors.

The first and perhaps most important is the jurisdiction in which your case will be heard. Some appellate courts are more likely to overturn a lower court’s decision than others.

Next, you’ll need to consider the strength of your argument. Even in a court that’s more favorable to appellants, if your argument is weak, your chances of success are slim.

Finally, you’ll need to consider the opposing party’s argument. If the other side has a strong argument, your chances of winning on appeal are reduced. Of course, no civil appeals lawyer can guarantee success on appeal, but knowing the odds can help you make a more informed decision about whether or not to pursue an appeal.

It is important to make sure you have all of the facts in a civil appeal case because it will help strategize how your argument should be made.


Civil Appeals Areas of Practice

Wow, did we get lucky. We didn’t know this firm at all, but we needed an attorney quick and they were close by. We had a very specific kind of legal need for our business, and most attorneys turned us away because they mostly handle the easy peasy stuff (the kind of stuff you could do on your own without much difficulty) and they didn’t want to handle anything as sticky as figuring out our more complex issues. Ickes Holt to the rescue! We will definitely be using these guys going forward. They don’t shy away from the tough stuff.
