Appeals

We Can Take It All the Way

Handling Appeals in State and Federal Court

Most business law disputes settle outside of the courtroom. However, sometimes an issue is important enough to the life of your business that it must go all the way to trial and sometimes beyond.

The attorneys of Dunn Lambert, LLC, pursue and defend against appeals. Our appellate practice includes aggressive representation of clients in federal court, including bankruptcy court, as well as in New Jersey and New York state courts.

When Can a Decision Be Appealed?

A case cannot be appealed just because you did not like the trial court outcome. The appellant must show that a legal error occurred that was so serious that the result of the trial court should be overturned or the case retried or dismissed.

No new evidence can be introduced and no witnesses can be called. The appeal must be based entirely on an analysis of the trial court record; this includes all statements made and all evidence presented at the trial. Attorneys from both sides prepare written briefs and oral arguments.

A Proactive Approach

At Dunn Lambert, LLC, our lawyers know that the most important step in winning on appeal is first creating a successful record in the trial court. We take a proactive approach. In every case we argue at trial, by laying the groundwork for a possible appeal.

Next we separate the wheat from the chaff. We perform a strategic analysis of the issues involved in the case and select only the strongest issues and arguments.

Time is of the essence. In bankruptcy court, for example, appeals must be filed within 10 days.
