The appellate process involves representation before a higher court, either in a request to review a lower court’s decision or in the defense of the lower court ruling. Generally, no new evidence or issues are brought to the appellate court’s attention – in other words, facts or issues that did not come up before the trial court will typically not be heard by the higher court. Appellate Judges make decisions based on the trial court record, applicable law, the parties’ briefs and oral argument.

You need a skilled attorney to guide your case through the appellate court process. William McKinley has comprehensive experience in legal research, legal writing, and the appeals process in federal and state courts. He has represented clients in pre- and post-judgment appeals to Florida’s appellate and federal appellate courts, including the Eleventh Circuit. If you would like to learn more about how to appeal a lower court ruling, defend a lower court ruling in your favor, or learn more about the appellate process, please contact us. The consultation is free.
