We will expose the legal issues that the judge and your lawyer missed
After the consultation, the first step in the appeal process is to scrutinize the court record, whether it is a trial record or the plea and sentence. We learn the details and issues of your case thoroughly by examining court transcripts, exhibits and motions. Crafting each legal issue for the appellate court’s review and conducting legal research are fundamental to your case; it’s where we start. Making sure every issue is covered and comprehensively researched is the starting point for a great legal brief. We will always run through numerous drafts of every brief before submitting it to the Court to ensure that no detail is lost; legal issues, case law, statement of facts (telling your side of the story), even grammar, sentence structure and paragraph structure are all essential parts of the process of creating your appellate brief. Your brief will be filed electronically and by hard copy with the Eleventh Circuit. Knowing how to file is a key part to making deadlines with the Circuit Court of Appeals. After we file your brief the Government will file an answering brief and we will then have the opportunity to draft a “reply,” attacking the Government’s arguments against you. Each of these stages is essential to the appellate argument, each will receive our meticulous attention.
We are experienced in addressing questions posed by federal appellate judges.
Oral argument before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals is a dynamic and fluid roller coaster ride for even the most experienced attorney. This is an interactive rapid-fire session where we advocate for you before a panel of Federal Judges; they ask questions, we answer and persuade, time is limited, preparation is paramount. Federal appellate courts differ from the trial courts; oral argument provides an appellate attorney with a limited amount of time to present your case and answer questions from the judges. But more than answering questions, oral argument is an opportunity to persuade the Court. It is a face-to- face meeting with the judges that will decide your case; it is the lawyer’s opportunity to probe the Court to see where they harbor doubts about the legal arguments raised in the appellate brief. Every question asked by a Judge on the panel is gold. Every question is an opportunity to understand and persuade. Our lawyers understand the essence and importance of the moment. We are there every step of the way arguing for you.
