Moving Forward With A Civil Or Criminal Appeal

After a court has ruled against you, pursuing an appeal can feel like an uphill battle. While you may feel like giving up on your claim, in most cases, you have a short window to start the appeals process, so it is important to act quickly.

Douglas Schneider has won civil and criminal appeals in the appellate courts in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and New Jersey, and has been supervising law students working on pro bono criminal appeals for a decade.

If you lose your case at or before trial, you need an appellate lawyer who knows what to look for and can identify the mistakes made in your case that can help you win on appeal. Doug has written, argued, and won appeals in the Appellate Divisions in the First and Second Departments, and New Jersey Appellate Courts, and his victories have appeared on the front page of the New York Law Journal.

Courts sometimes get the law wrong. Lawyers sometimes make mistakes. Jurors have been known to commit misconduct. To win an appeal, you need an experienced appellate attorney who knows what to look for, how to find it, and how to win.
