Appellate Services

So, the trial is over... Did the jury get it right? Let's face it, in litigation, sometimes the result is unexpected. Perhaps the result was fostered by an improper evidentiary ruling or another error committed by the trial court. If your client has found the outcome less than palatable, you may consider appealing the result.
