Appellate law is nuanced and complicated, and if you are preparing for the possibility of an appeal, you need an experienced attorney to guide you through the process. An appeal does not offer you another chance to try your case, at least not directly. However, it does allow for a higher Ohio court to carefully review the first outcome to your case in order to determine if the proper verdict was reached. Your lawyer can continue to represent your interests throughout the duration of the appeals process.
Whether your case was ruled in your favor or not, an appeal may seek to scrutinize the trial judge's decision. If there was a mistake either in the interpretation of the law or procedure, the ruling could be reversed. In some cases, an appeal could result in a retrial. Appeals are possible in cases pertaining to criminal law, civil litigation and administrative law.
In some cases, an appeal may necessitate some oral argument before the higher court. Overall, it is mostly dependant upon extensive research and knowledge of the nuances of the law.
