NY Federal Appellate Attorneys - New York Federal Appellate Lawyers

New York Federal Appeals

When pursuing a federal appeal in New York, it is important to consult with an appellate attorney with experience. Only a federal appeal lawyer who is adept at appellate practice understands the complexities and time constraints involved in both civil and criminal appeals.

When you lose a case in a New York federal district court, the appeal is taken to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals. Appeals to the Second Circuit involve explaining to the court the prejudicial errors made by the trial court. While this would seem like a simple task, navigating this process requires an attorney who has sharpened this skill set. Federal courts have short deadlines and strict rules of procedure. This is why it is important to hire an appellate lawyer who is familiar with the practices and procedures of federal courts.

Federal cases often have severe consequences. Civil cases at the federal level usually entail large sums of money. On the criminal side, a federal conviction often involves a lengthy prison sentence.

One thing both types of appeals have in common - complex issues arise in almost all federal appeals. These issues can arise during any point in the litigation. This is why it is important to review the entire record in a federal appeal so that a determination can be made as to what errors occurred not only during the trial, but also during pre-trial and post-trial proceedings and motions. A thorough review of the entire record helps to determine if errors occurred, how the issues were raised, and if the issues were preserved. If you want to win on appeal, it is vital that you have an attorney with the experience to identify the issues and present them to the appellate court in a skillful manner. This is where an appellate attorney is an invaluable asset.

If you want to appeal a federal civil case or a federal criminal conviction in New York, it is important to contact an experienced New York federal appellate attorney quickly so that you do not miss important deadlines.
