Making The Tough Choice To Appeal Your Case

Most litigants choose to file an appeal when they have an overwhelming feeling of bias against them at the lower court, or a feeling that their issue is so important they must exhaust all possibilities to have their position heard and considered. Most litigants are advised that winning an appeal is difficult, and investing time and money in an appeal should only be done in the most unusual of circumstances.

Laura Robbins Law, L.L.C.‘s founding attorney provides appellate court representation with clients in Pennsylvania. She is clear with potential clients of the challenges before them and what it will take to prevail in their particular circumstances.

How The Appeal Process Works

Not only is winning an appeal difficult, but there are also very strict rules of court a litigant must follow in order to have an appeal heard and considered. Whether it be an appeal to the commonwealth court, superior court, or Supreme Court, every litigant must be familiar with the court’s rules, whether or not represented by an attorney. If a litigant violates one of the rules, the appeal may be dismissed without being heard or considered.

It is important to have an experienced lawyer represent you if you choose to appeal your case. The benefits of hiring an experienced attorney for your appeal are priceless – you will be able to support your position with properly-cited case law, you will have a brief filed on your behalf if necessary, and you will have a professional ‘guide’ as you navigate through the appeal process.
