The appeals process also has its own set of rules, and attorneys must have special legal skills to use during this process. Quite frankly, even the best judges don’t rule accurately in every case, and mistakes can be made with alarming regularity. Luckily, the appeals process offers clients an opportunity to have their case reviewed by a higher court.
The decision to file an appeal will often vary from case to case, but typically the grounds for an appeal include a belief that a judge was biased, evidence was improperly considered, or applicable laws were misapplied, leading to an incorrect decision or outcome.
A case that goes through this process will usually result in one of the following outcomes:
- Affirmed - The higher court agrees with the previous lower court's decision
- Reversed - The higher court disagrees with the earlier decision and decides to overturn it
- Remanded - The higher court sends the case back down to the lower court for review and possible modification
While the outcome will depend on a variety of different factors, I’ll do everything I can to exhaust every possible avenue that can lead to a positive decision in your case.
