Appellate Law

Appellate proceedings for all civil and administrative matters

Appellate LawAppellate law consists of the rules and practices by which higher courts review judgments and decisions of lower courts. The right of a party to appeal an adverse legal decision is found within the United States Constitution and in state constitutions. When a party pursues an appeal, the appellate court will not retry the case or receive new evidence. Rather, the appellate court confines its review to errors that may have been committed by the lower court and to a determination as to whether or not such errors were grievous enough to warrant reversal.
