Our justice system recognizes that judges can make mistakes and that punishments can be unfair. To rectify these problems, losing parties may appeal decisions, as can prevailing parties who did not win how or as much as they think justified. Whether you won or lost before a trial court, it is imperative to work with an attorney who is familiar with the appeals process.
If you are considering an appeal, time is of the essence: most federal appeals must be filed within 30 days of the judgment. Indeed, even the number of days available, when those days start counting, and what counts as an appealable judgment can be tricky questions. You need an experienced appellate lawyer to review your case, find the types of inconsistencies or mistakes that may lead to the reversal or lessening (or increasing) of your judgment. Count on Mr. Joseph to give your appeal a fighting chance.
Even parties that prevailed in trial court should consider appellate counsel: not all trial counsel are qualified to defend a favorable result on appeal. Speaking with an experienced appellate attorney may present you with options you otherwise thought were not possible.
Trust Mr. Joseph to fight for you. He will work hard to see that clients are treated fairly and justly by the legal system.
