Appellate Court Litigation in Knoxville

Different from trial courts, appellate courts review documentation related to the proceedings of a trial court to determine if laws were applied correctly and rulings were fair. Following a criminal or civil case, a person who feels that a ruling was unfair can hire an appellate lawyer to appeal to a higher court.

Appellate Court Litigation Considerations

It takes considerable legal research and specialized knowledge to appeal to the United States courts of appeals, also known as circuit courts. An appellate lawyer must fully understand the appeals process and have experience working with state and federal courts. An appellate attorney needs to be able to:

  • Work with a cold record
  • Review trial records
  • Understand facts developed in the trial court
  • Possess a firm grasp of the different levels of the appeals process
  • Research and analyze current case law
  • Know what additional actions can be taken if a party loses an appeal
  • Advocate for you in writing and in person
