Appeals

Your freedom, reputation, and financial security are of great importance, and it may be worth filing an appeal even if your chance of success appears low. As appeals are time-consuming and expensive, you may decide that continuing to pursue justice for your case is not worth the risk. Keep in mind that this decision must be made very soon after your case is over.

As a rule, when a case is appealed, there must have been a legal or procedural error for the court to change the decision. In other words, the appellate court generally isn’t going to change decisions that have been made on the facts. Rather, they will look to see whether the law was correctly followed and that everything was done correctly. If a jury was given bad instructions, if the judge allowed evidence in that they shouldn’t have, or if something else of that nature went wrong, then the case may be “overturned,” meaning, the original decision will be changed, or it may be remanded, which means it will be sent back to the lower court to review again with more explanation.
