Civil Appeals Attorney Serving New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
After spending months or even years in litigation, losing a case in court may seem like a major setback. But the trial judge’s decision isn’t always the final word. In the event you did not prevail in your civil case at the trial level because the court made a mistake, an appeal can offer a new perspective — and reverse the lower court’s decision. If you believe a legal error was made in determining the outcome of your case, it is important to work with an experienced civil appeals attorney who can assist you with your appellate matter.
Hegge & Confusione, LLC provides expert representation in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and federal courts for a wide range of civil appeals. Whether you are the party requesting appellate review or you are seeking to uphold the lower court’s decision, we will provide an honest evaluation of your case and guide you through the appellate process.
Handling a Broad Scope of Civil Appeals in New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania
When it comes to filing a civil appeal, the stakes are high — and there are only a few types of errors that can justify reversal of the lower court’s decision. For example, if the trial court judge gave the jurors incorrect instructions, inadmissible evidence was used at trial, or the judge misapplied the governing law, an appellate court might reverse or modify the decision. It’s critical to have a civil appellate attorney who knows how to identify these mistakes and emphasize them to the appellate court to ensure the best possible outcome.
At Hegge & Confusione, our appeals attorneys handle a wide variety of civil appeals, including the following:
- Divorce judgments
- Child custody and family law appeals
- Breach of contract and business litigation appeals
- Will and Probate appeals
- Real property disputes
- Personal injury, Malpractice, and negligence matters
- Restraining orders
- A variety of other civil matters
Our firm’s sole focus is on appeals. We are adept at representing clients in appellate matters at all levels, in both the state and federal courts. With more than 20 years of experience, we know what it takes to perfect an appeal, draft a persuasive brief, and successfully argue a case before a panel of appellate judges. Whether we are working on behalf of our client to reverse an unjust outcome or preserve the trial court’s decision, our civil appeals attorney team has the insight and acumen necessary to handle even the most complex appeals cases.
Knowledge. Experience. Diligence.
Appeals are not an opportunity to relitigate a case and they are not prepared in the same way that a case would be for trial. They are meant to address crucial issues that were overlooked by the lower court. Appellate matters require a strategic approach and knowledge of the specific procedures and rules associated with filing an appeal. Having handled hundreds of appeals, at Hegge & Confusione, we have a deep understanding of the civil appeals process and its intricate requirements.
Additionally, it’s vital to be aware that you have a very limited amount of time to file a notice of appeal. Failure to adhere to the timeline can bar you from bringing an appeal. It’s essential to have the representation of a civil appeals attorney who has extensive knowledge of the appellate rules and process, as well as the ability to present a convincing case to the appellate court. Our clients can be confident in knowing that when they are represented by our Firm, their appeal will be handled diligently and professionally.
With more than two decades of experience, our attorneys know how a panel of appellate judges will look at a case — and we will prepare the written brief and oral argument from this view point. From the initial review of your case until your case is resolved, we offer client-centered advocacy and valuable counsel. We work closely with our clients to keep them informed every step of the way, from the consultation to the briefing, argument, and conclusion. With Hegge & Confusione by your side, you can rest assured that you have a trusted civil appeals attorney who is committed to providing high-quality legal services through all stages of the appellate process.
