Appellate courts in the United States are used to review the findings of trial courts. They correct errors committed to trial courts, ensure uniformity across the lower courts, and serves to clarify and develop existing laws. Appellate courts work with the procedure of the law rather than the facts of the case. If you are struggling to have a successful case in an appellate court, you will want the assistance and expertise of an appellate attorney. An attorney can guide you step by step through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.
When a case goes to appellate court, the trial is not repeated. Rather, the appellate court will review the records from the trial, including evidence, documents, and reporter transcripts. Those transcripts will contain all that was said by the judge, witnesses, or attorneys. Appellate courts also allow the prosecution and defense to submit briefs for their side of the issue.
With appellate cases there are specified deadlines in place to ensure that the case is finished quickly. If you miss that deadline, your case can be delayed or denied.
