Analysis • Perfection • Response • Motions

The justice system is not foolproof. There may have been legal or procedural errors during your civil case that greatly impacted its outcome. If a judge's order or a jury's decision was unjust, we can work with you to appeal their decision and pursue the legal justice you deserve. One of the ways we succeed is in proving that a legal error from your initial case was significant enough to substantially impact your case outcome. Minor errors will be dismissed by the court.

The appeals process is complex. If you believe that your case deserves review, you should work with a law firm that understands the intricacies of the appellate process. Mischel & Horn has the necessary experience to carefully review your civil case, identify errors and strongly advocate on your behalf in either the state or federal court of appeals. You only have 30 days after a state court decision, and 60 days after a federal court decision, to file an appeal. We recommend contacting our offices immediately after your case's conclusion to protect your right to appeal.
