Fort Worth And Burleson Appellate Law Attorneys

The law is never easy, and it is never more challenging than when you lose an important case. It is especially difficult when you are certain an error or significant misunderstanding contributed to the verdict.

Appeals are very different from trials. What they lack in drama and emotion, they make up in dispassionate logic, superior writing skills and confident knowledge of the law. Appeals do not admit new evidence; they are decided entirely on examination of the judicial process of the trial. Facts get overlooked. Rights get ignored. Statutes and precedents are wrongly interpreted. Good appellate lawyers are more like scholars than trial lawyers. They carefully comb through court records with fresh eyes to identify errors that may lead to reversal.
