Overcoming The Difficulties Of Appeal

Whether you have been unfairly convicted of a crime, or the judge has made an incorrect ruling in your civil case, you often have the remedy of appealing the result. Whether the appeal is granted or not is typically based on the filing that is done by the attorney on behalf of the client.

Many law firms do not handle appeals, as this legal remedy requires extensive research to identify and successfully demonstrate errors were made in the original ruling or trial. An appeal is often the only recourse provided by the courts to give you the opportunity to receive justice and it is important that you have an effective and dedicated attorney to help you initiate this critical process.

What Does It Take To Be Successful On Appeal?

Appellate practice is a unique area of the law that requires a lawyer to make a comprehensive review of the entire record. Being a successful appellate lawyer requires a combination of substantive knowledge, trial experience and effective writing skills.

The lawyers at Schneider Law PLLC, have an impressive record of reversing negative rulings and turning them into victories. For example, Douglas M. Schneider made the front page of the New York Law Journal for successfully having a conviction reversed at the appellate level.
