So, you're not happy with the outcome of your case. The judge made a huge mistake! If that happens, you need to file an appeal. What does that mean? How do you do that?
The most important thing to remember is that you should not wait. The deadlines to file an appeal are hard and fast-- and there is no mercy.
Another thing to know is that the wheels of appellate justice do not turn fast. You're in for a long haul in most cases (the Court moves at its own pace, though it does depend on the type of case you have). Try to be patient.
Finally, know that in the Court of Appeals there are no Perry Mason moments. Most everything happens on paper (there may be an oral argument, but only the lawyers get to talk, there are no witnesses, no exhibits, no cross-examination) and without fanfare.
