FAQ - Appellate Advocacy

How do I know if I have grounds for an appeal?

It is very difficult to assess whether you have grounds to appeal a decision without the assistance of a well qualified and experienced appeals lawyer.

 

A determination of whether or not you have grounds to appeal a court decision requires a thorough and meticulous review of the reasons, the applicable law and facts, and can also include a review of the transcripts from the lower court proceeding particularly in the case of an appeal from a trial. The review involves searching for potential procedural or judicial errors in reasoning which would substantiate an appeal.

 

There are strict timelines within which a decision can be appealed so it is imperative to conduct this review quickly and as early as possible in order preserve your appeal rights.

Do I get a second chance to argue my case on appeal?

An appeal is not an opportunity to re-argue your case. Appeals are usually confined to determinations on whether there have been errors in the decision being appealed. Most often appeals deal with errors of law. In rare cases an appeal can lead to a decision to grant a new trial.

How much time do I have to appeal the decision?

Appeals usually involve strict timelines some of which are very short. It is important to engage a lawyer immediately to preserve your appeal rights.

Why do I need a lawyer?

Although it is possible to appear on an appeal self-represented, representation by a well qualified and experienced appellate lawyer will have a great impact on your chances for success before any appeal court.

 

Appeals involve unique procedural and substantive considerations that would benefit from the expertise of an experienced lawyer.

Why should I choose your firm?

At Kelly + Singh our lawyers have been successful on many appeal matters, and have the expertise to provide advice and representation on any appeal matter.
