Appellate (Appeals) Law
If mistakes were made in applying the rules of civil procedure to your case at trial, or the decision of the trial court was based on a judge’s erroneous interpretation of the law, an appeal of the decision in your case is possible.
When you bring your case to Sutton Sachs Meyer, you are engaging an elite and intrepid law firm, equipped to litigate your case at the appellate level. Our lawyers can handle civil appeals in all New York and New Jersey appellate courts. Within our team of attorneys is litigation experience in the New York State Supreme Court’s Appellate Division. We work across a wide spectrum of practice, in the capacity of both defensive and offensive representation.
Note that few cases have a basis for appeal. The oft-quoted observation of Judge James Knight-Bruce holds true: it is “generally the duty of an appellate judge to leave undisturbed a decision of which he does not clearly disapprove.”
With that awareness, our appellate attorneys can assess the legal merits of appealing your case. We can also outline for you the remedies that our lawyers will be eligible to seek on your behalf from the appeals court.
The litigators of Sutton Sachs Meyer are pleased to diligently serve our clientele in New York City, throughout New York, and in the surrounding region. Please submit your contact details or call us by phone at 212-480-4350 so that we may examine your case in a complimentary initial consultation.
