Appeals

The appeals process clarifies and interprets laws to determine if a lower court decision was correct.  In the appellate process, the case is presented to an appellate court instead of a jury. However, before any oral arguments happen, the attorneys will write persuasive briefs advancing their client’s case.  After that, the appellate court may ask the attorneys to orally argue the case and the briefs, thereby giving the appellate court the chance to question the attorneys about their arguments. An appellate attorney must be skilled to handle questions and legal theories presented by the appellate court because the appellate court can affirm, reverse, or vacate the lower court or jury’s decision. Attorney Amy A. Feliciano has the knowledge and experience to successfully handle the entire appellate process, from researching and writing exceptional briefs to delivering poised and persuasive oral arguments.
