Handling appeals in Florida and federal district courts
As experienced trial attorneys, Clark, Fountain, La Vista, Prather, Keen & Littky-Rubin lawyers research and prepare cases thoroughly and then argue them professionally at trial, when necessary. Cases can be dismissed by the judge early in the litigation, or a full trial can precede final judgment. Most cases we handle from the beginning to the end finish when a verdict is issued, but that is not always what happens. A party unhappy with the outcome—typically the losing side, but sometimes even the winning side—can appeal. That is when the case goes to Appellate Court.
Why you need specialized assistance
Typically, appellate courts do not retry cases or hear new evidence. They focus instead on what occurred in the trial court to see if the proper procedures were followed and the proper law was applied. Therefore, the issues raised on appeal can be significantly different those raised at the trial, and they are often technical and complex. When your case is appealed, you need to have on your side an experienced appellate attorney who is familiar with Florida appellate courts and understands exactly how appeals are won or lost.
