Florida Appellate, Appeals Lawyer & Litigation Support
Serving Boca Raton, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach County and Broward County
“It’s difficult to see the forest for the trees.”
This saying holds especially true when discussing Appeals and Appellate Law.
Often in a civil proceeding, a trial attorney has focused so much on the trial preparation of the original case that it’s difficult to step back and look at the case from a different perspective – that of the appellate judge.
This is exactly why, if your case is going to appeal, you must hire a dedicated appellate lawyer. A talented trial attorney typically has a commanding presence, the ability to “connect” with a jury, to “weave” facts into a strong account supporting the client’s case, and then present a convincing oral argument. While these skills work in a jury trial, they are not the same skills that achieve results at the appellate level.
Appellate courts do not retry cases or hear new evidence. Instead, they review what has occurred to see if the proper procedures were followed and the correct laws were applied. Because of the limited nature of this review, the appropriate issues raised on appeal are significantly different from those that are raised at trial. Appellate lawyers focus on procedure and black letter law, explain the facts and procedural history of the case, and then explain why the appellate court should or should not reverse the decision. There is no emotion involved, but rather the appellate lawyer focuses on providing salient points of law to support your position and make the appeal court understand why a verdict should be affirmed or reversed.
These points then make up the appellate brief and the oral arguments. To craft effective briefs and arguments, extensive legal research and analysis are necessary, as well as tremendous knowledge of case laws and precedents. These abilities are what The Law Offices of Robin Bresky provides – as well as the distinct ability to effectively present information to an appellate panel.
