Do I Have a Case for Litigation?
Whenever possible, we seek resolution through mediation and negotiation before taking your case to court. This cuts the cost of legal fees as well as sparing you the time and strain of going to trial. So before we take the litigation route, we will sit down and discuss the details of your case to help you determine whether litigation is necessary.
Cases that typically require litigation involve large settlements, corporations and/or businesses, insurance bad faith, personal injury, and appellate matters. Cases such as personal injury settlement are usually handled through mediation. Ultimately, the individual nature and circumstances of your case are what determine whether litigation is the right path to go down to pursue the best results.
What Constitutes an Appellate Case?
In civil cases, either side can appeal the verdict. However, it is usually the losing party, and they are entitled to appeal the final decision or ruling to the state or federal court of appeals.
If you have received an unfavorable verdict and want to appeal for a better one, we can help you through the appeals process and pursue your desired result.
What is the Process for Appealing a Verdict?
Some appeals cases may be decided on through a written brief (a legal document prepared by an attorney) alone. But many cases require an oral argument before the court of appeals. These oral arguments are between the appellate’s lawyer and a panel of judges. Each side is allowed time in front of the panel to argue on behalf of their client.
This process can be difficult and often takes time. If you feel your case should go before the court of appeals, hire an experienced appellate trial attorney as soon as possible to start preparations for your argument.
