Assistance with Appeals & Writs
Get a Pasadena Criminal Appeals Lawyer on Your Side
Following the ruling of a lower court, the losing party may file a notice of appeal, request transcripts and other court records in order to cite legal reasons for overturning the initial ruling. No new evidence is admitted during an appeal and is strictly a legal argument.
The initial winning party may file responsive briefs countering these arguments. The appellant may then file a counter response that is the final brief. The appeals court may sustain the original ruling, reverse it, or send the case back to the original court. In each state, the Supreme Courts are the highest appeals courts; however, lower appeals courts exist in every state as well.
