A word of caution when utilizing your trial counsel for an appeal —

Permitting your trial counsel to continue representing you or your company on appeal—without input from experienced appellate counsel—can be a costly mistake. The ineffective appellate advocate can squander your one chance of overturning an unjust result.

And where you've won at trial, the ineffective advocate can forfeit your victory. Everything you or your company fought so hard to win can be lost if your opponent highlights just a single error that persuades the appellate court to reverse the case.
