Appeals

You can appeal a court decision if you believe errors were made by the trial court. When you appeal, a higher court reviews the case to determine if legal errors affected the outcome. If the appellate court finds that the trial court made an error, it can overturn the decision.

Appellate work is challenging and requires special skills. The attorneys at Faupel Musser Love, P.C., handle all types of civil appeals. We are licensed in all Michigan appellate courts, United States district courts, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. We also handle administrative agency appeals.

Fighting A Court Decision

Our attorneys have done appellate work in several groundbreaking areas of law. Faupel Musser Love, P.C., also won a landmark decision in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in an Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) case. We have many published decisions.

It is important to understand that an appeal is not a new trial and does not include new information about your case. During an appeal, the appellate court will examine the record from your trial court case. It looks for any errors that the circuit court may have made during the trial.

Our job is to prepare the brief, submit it to the judges and, if necessary, present oral arguments. You need a lawyer who has the research and writing skills necessary to prepare briefs and arguments that meet the high standards of appellate court judges. Not all attorneys have the ability or the desire to take on appellate work, but we do.
