While filing an appeal needs to happen soon after the first case concludes, resolving an appealed case can be a long process—often up to six months or more. During that time, however, our firm works closely with our clients, walking them through what to expect over the course of the case and collecting all of the necessary paperwork, including the original trial transcript. The Supreme Court will eventually set deadlines to follow, which our team will handle differently depending on who in the case we are representing.
Once a hearing is set, you, your counsel, and other involved parties will attend a hearing where the appellate court will consider your case. The judge will already have documentation of each party's argument and case history, but you may have the opportunity to present an oral argument, as well. Attorneys in the case usually do this on their clients' behalf.
Once all the evidence has been presented, a number of things can happen. The judge can overturn the initial decision, send it back to the original court for redecision or retrial, or affirm the initial ruling. It is also possible for part of the case to be upheld, while other parts are retried. Depending on the outcome, our firm will be ready to help see your case through to a final decision.
