When a judge or jury decides a case at trial, a party sometimes seeks to appeal the decision. The trial lawyer may not be able to represent the party on appeal, and another attorney is hired to represent the party on appeal. It is important to hire an attorney who is knowledgeable of the specific requirements for appeals, skilled in legal research and writing, and familiar with the subject matter, to be able to address the specific issues in your case.
