Hegge & Confusione: The Law Firm for Appeals

Hegge & Confusione is an appellate practice that focuses exclusively on appealing cases in courts. With over twenty years of experience, we have tackled hundreds of civil and criminal appeals, honing the art of appellate representation and developing new and sophisticated ways to effectively present cases to an appellate court. We are known for both our cutting-edge advocacy and our client-centered representation.

We handle appeals in the federal courts (including the U.S. Supreme Court) and in the courts of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and the Washington, D.C. metro area. Learn more about why clients hire us or contact Hegge & Confusione to have an experienced appellate lawyer review your case.

Please keep in mind that the deadlines for most appeals are strictly limited. If you are considering an appeal, it is advisable to get a case assessment from an appellate attorney as soon as possible so your time limit does not expire.

Civil Appeals: Preserving Trial Victories, Reversing Unjust Defeats

Trials, Class Actions, Family and Matrimonial, Probate Court, Chancery Court

Our legal system is not perfect. Courts sometimes make serious errors in civil cases. If you believe you received an unfair result in a civil case, or have won and are facing an appeal from the opposing party, Hegge & Confusione can protect your rights in appellate court.

For those who are not happy with the court’s ruling, working with an appellate lawyer is essential. This is your second chance to fight for the decision that you feel is fair. Our appellate attorneys can bring a fresh perspective to your case and renew crucial discussions while helping to advance the case in your favor.

But an appeal is not just for those who lost a case. In some cases, fighting an appeal may be worth it even after a trial victory. If your opponent decides to appeal your case and highlights even a small mistake, the entire case and the ruling can be reversed, undoing all the time and effort you spent towards that win. An effective appellate attorney can help you counter the opposition’s arguments and articulately explain why a reversal is not merited.

Whether you’ve lost in a lower court or an opponent is now appealing your victory, discuss the situation with our team. We can evaluate the details of your case and help you decide how you should move forward.

Criminal Appeals: State and Federal Appeals, Post-Judgment Relief, Habeas Petitions

A conviction is not the end of a criminal case – it is just the beginning.

Individuals who have been convicted of a crime can contest their conviction and sentence in pursuit of a more favorable outcome by filing an appeal, or by filing state and federal habeas corpus petitions. The process is complex, however, making it vital that you retain a skilled criminal appeals lawyer who is intimately familiar with the appeals process and appeals court – giving you the best chance of securing a favorable outcome in your case.

At Hegge & Confusione, we will protect your rights to a fair and impartial criminal process. We understand the gravity of your situation and stand by you every step of the way during the appeals process. With one-on-one counsel and an unshakable dedication to protecting constitutional rights, we provide the results-driven advocacy you need during this difficult time. As shown by our many positive client testimonials, your case is sure to be in excellent hands.

Contact our criminal appeal attorneys today to take the first step towards relief in your case.
