How a lawyer can help you in your appeal

Dealing with an appeal of your case, no matter what it is for, can best be dealt with when using the help of an appeals lawyer. Here's how a lawyer can help you when appealing a case in Cleveland, Ohio.

In most cases, since you've already been through a trial, you have worked with an attorney. Keeping that attorney on retainer for the appeals can help with your appeal, but it's also a good idea to retain a lawyer who has experience appealing court decisions.

When it comes to filing an appeal, this part of the legal process will require quite a bit of research, writing and arguing defense legal doctrines in front of an appeals judge or even a panel of judges. Lawyers with appellate experience know what it takes to perform under pressure and make tight deadlines. The deadlines are associated with making court appearances, which could require in-depth legal research and writing intricate briefs arguing your case.

As you prepare to appeal a prior court's decision, you will want to look at the prior cases handled by an appellate attorney. Figure out if the attorney has worked on cases such as yours and the success he or she has had in those cases. Once you come to a decision, be sure to inform your previous lawyer of your plans to either keep him or her as part of the appellate team or let him or her know that you are strictly going to use the appellate lawyer to file your appeal with the court.

If you are in need of an appeals attorney for your case, contact our firm to discuss the previous ruling and how an appeals attorney can help you in your fight to appeal the decision in Ohio.
