The Florida appeal attorneys at the Law Offices of Paul A. Humbert P.L. work with clients who have previously received a judgment conviction of court crimes. We frequently appear at sentencing or post-trial in order to prepare for an appeal or litigation for reduced sentencing at both the levels of State and Federal Appeals.
Why Hire an Appellate Attorney?
It would seem popular opinion to assume that an attorney who handled the original case from initiation through trial would bear the most knowledge in relation to the case. However, when it comes time for an appeal, this is not a clearly defined advantage. Trial attorneys are often profoundly established within the legal issues of the case that it becomes difficult to maintain objectivity to determine whether or not established grounds for an appeal exist and the best course of action for pursuance.
Our attorneys provide the fresh perspective of an appellate attorney, impartially seeking errors that may provide grounds for appeal. Our appellate law firm reviews the record in the same manner as the court will, all-important in preparation, and inevitably in a positive resolution of your appellate case.
Many attorneys handle appeals as a subordinate part of their practice. Our practice is focused on appellate law and associated procedures in Florida courts, including federal appeals courts.
Appellate Law Firm
The goal of appellate courts is consideration of the interpretation, assessment, and application of the law in regards to the facts determined by the trial court. After a trial, defendants may appeal a conviction or jury verdict. Appellate courts generally do not afford a defendant with a new trial and evidence that was not provided at the time of trial will not be admitted into the appeal.
Appellate litigation requires attorneys to utilize an erudite approach to complex legal circumstances. By means of advanced strategizing and investigation, cautious and inventive examination, a familiarity of adaptations in the law, and creative and lucid documentation, a qualified attorney can successfully defend an appellate judgment.
State & Federal Appeals
At the Law Offices of Paul A. Humbert, P.L., our attorneys have litigated appeals in Florida Courts as well as the United States Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. For more information on how we may be of assistance in a federal or state court appeal, please contact one of our legal professionals as soon as possible. There is often not much time available once a judgment has been received. Therefore timely intervention from a qualified legal professional is vital towards the effort of receiving a positive resolution in an appellate court case.
