United States Supreme Court, Washington DCWhen a judge or jury renders a verdict in your case, you may think the case is over. If the verdict was not what you expected, however, perhaps the most important part of the case – the appeal – still lies ahead. Whether you are unhappy with the decision in your civil case or feel you’ve been convicted of a crime unjustly, the appeal process represents your opportunity for a second chance. Appellate practice is different from trial practice. Parties argue the law to a judge or panel of judges, rather than presenting facts to a jury, which requires a different skill set. The attorneys of Wilson, Morton & Downs have the experience and abilities needed to get you the best result possible on appeal.
