If you are going to file an appeal for a court decision, it is important to start the process as soon as possible. This will allow ample time to meet court deadlines and, with the help of an experienced appellate attorney, appeal an unfavorable decision to a higher court.
The deadlines for filing your appeal will depend on the court it is being appealed to. However, it is important to consider that your appeal may go through multiple courts. For example, if you appeal to a state court and the ruling is upheld, you can then appeal to a federal court.
In order to make sure you meet the deadlines and give yourself the best chance at having your case overturned, you will want to start the appeals process right away. Our experienced appellate lawyers can help you from the moment you first consider filing an appeal through every step of the appeals process, including examining your case to determine if you will be able to appeal the court decision.
In the lower courts, you are more likely to win an appeal than you are in the higher courts, and appealing in federal courts is especially difficult. While you are able to appeal all the way up to the Supreme Court, your appeal is more likely to be denied the higher up the court system you go.
For this reason, combined with varying court deadlines, it is imperative to put your appeal together as soon as possible and begin working in the lower courts. At Delgado & Romanik, our appellate attorneys can assist you through the process of appealing to state and federal courts.
If you have questions about appealing a court decision or are ready to start the appeals process, our experienced appellate attorneys are here to help. Call us today at 386.222.6677 or contact us online for a free initial consultation.
