Fort Lee Appellate Lawyer

Providing Comprehensive Representation in State & Federal Courts

Are you unhappy with an earlier court decision? Do you feel that your case was presented in an improper or inadequate manner which led to an unfair decision? You have the right to appeal that decision by submitting it to the scrutiny of a higher court. Appellate courts have been established to review lower court decisions in order to decide if the previous proceeding was fair and whether the relevant laws were correctly applied or interpreted.

If you wish to appeal your case before an appellate court, you will need the services of an attorney who focuses on appellate law. Our Fort Lee appellate lawyer at Charles Shaw Law has a strong background and track record in effective appellate representation. We understand the appellate process and what is required to review and research your case as well as how to present strong written and oral arguments before judges.

New Jersey Appellate Courts & Procedure

When contemplating an appeal, you will have to act in a timely manner. You will only have a short time to appeal after receiving the lower court’s decision. If you miss the deadline, you may forfeit your right to appeal altogether.

Courts in New Jersey that hear appellate cases exist at both the state and federal level and include:

  • The Appellate Division of Superior Court
  • New Jersey’s Supreme Court
  • The U.S. Court of Appeals
  • The U.S. Supreme Court

In general, an appellate court’s job is not to provide you with a retrial or hear new evidence – its purpose is to review the lower court’s proceedings for factual or legal mistakes. They have the power to reverse the lower court’s decision or to modify it. When doing so, the case is “remanded” back to the lower court where the error will be corrected. In these cases, a new trial, sentence, monetary judgment, or decision may be ordered or the case may be dismissed.
