What is Appellate Law?

Appellate law is the process by which court cases are reviewed in a specialized court. Every legal case begins with a trial, either criminal or civil in nature.

When a final judgment is made or the case is dismissed, any party that is unsatisfied with the outcome of the case may file an appeal. The appeal court does not hear new evidence or retry cases; rather, these courts review the lower court judgment to determine whether proper procedures were followed and if the proper laws and penalties were applied.

In some cases, an appellate court may clarify the interpretation of statutes as they apply to the original trial, and in other cases, a new trial may be granted or conviction overturned.

How Can Lewarchik Law PLLC Help?

Civil and criminal appeals can be extremely complex legal affairs, and unfortunately, errors in judgment during the original trial do occur. Not every decision handed down by a court will be fair or just, and there is also the possibility that the circumstances of an appeal may change at a moment’s notice.

New witnesses may come forth and new evidence may come to light, necessitating a re-evaluation of the case and possibly a revision–or even a reversal–of the original ruling.

Under these circumstances, appeal lawyer Mr. Lewarchik is the most reliable source of appeals legal assistance in the Illinois and Michigan areas. Regardless of your circumstances, Mr. Lewarchik's qualifications will maximize your chances of success on appeal.
