Vermont Federal Appellate Attorneys - Federal Appeal Lawyers

Federal Appeals in Vermont

Whether you are looking to appeal a civil case or a criminal conviction rendered by the United States District Court for the District of Vermont, a federal appeal is taken to the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit which is located in New York City.

If you want to appeal a decision, you should consult with an experienced federal appellate attorney immediately as appellate deadlines are short and appeals involve a great deal of preparation.

Appeals are complicated and require a thorough review of the lower court record to determine the strengths of your potential appeal. 

In a federal appeal, you are asking a federal circuit court to review the trial court's decision for prejudicial error. This is done by first taking the appeal and then perfecting the appeal.

Taking the appeal requires filing the appropriate documents to notify the court that you intend to appeal the case. Taking the appeal must be done in a timely manner and must follow the procedural rules established by the court.

After the appeal is taken, the parties must perfect the appeal. This requires preparing the record on appeal and writing comprehensive legal briefs. These legal briefs cite not only the relevant law and the trial court record, but also provide the court with a persuasive legal argument as to how errors committed by the trial court impacted your case and why you should be afforded a reversal and/or a new trial.
