Appellate proceeding

Not every case ends with the first order or decision. If your judgment was recent, you still have options to appeal. Whether you are a Plaintiff or Defendant, Karina Duvall can appeal your case to a higher court and seek relief from the court to change your order.

Appellate practice involves different skills and strategic considerations than litigation practice. The focus shifts to the legal issues that decide the case. Effective appellate defense demands a formulation of the issues that focus on what is important to a panel of appellate judges deciding the case.

Karina Duvall as an appellate attorney conducts accurate legal research, analyzes the legal issues, and then highlights concisely the arguments selected for appeal in a powerful appellate brief.

Appellate briefs receive greater judicial scrutiny because they are reviewed by a collegium of judges. Appellate work entails rigorous original work in its own right and offers counsel their best opportunity to craft work of original, professional, and literary value.

Oral argument is an opportunity to engage in a dialogue with the appellate judges regarding the issues in the case. To be effective, appellate oral advocacy must be keyed to the unique concerns of the appellate forum – avoiding emotional pleas, but instead focusing on the dispositive legal issues.

If you were party to a family law case and are unhappy with the result, it is important that you act fast. Appeals are time-limited, and there are deadlines to meet if you believe you deserve another result. If you retain Karina Duvall as your appellate attorney, she will work speedily to file an appeal, and in so doing, preserve your rights and opportunities to receive justice.

Whatever your reasons for contesting your trial result, you have the constitutional right to an appeal. Karina Duvall can help you to exercise that right and get the justice you deserve.

An appellate lawyer plays an important role in the trial courts. An appellate lawyer works on strategic and tactical matters, crafting effective motions before, during, and after trial.

Therefore, involving an appellate lawyer in a case as early as possible is important to ensure the best chance of success both at trial and on appeal.
