Justice System Accountable
If a civil judgment did not go as you wanted, remember, you have options. You can try to appeal a bad judgment and correct errors.
Your appeal will be based on what was submitted at your trial, and new evidence and witnesses will not be admitted. You will have to argue that errors, either in the procedure or the judge’s interpretation of the law, were made in your trial. The attorney you hire is important. Our principal attorney at Clouthier Law, PLLC, Susan Clouthier, focuses almost exclusively on appellate law.Appeals can Make Sure The Law was Applied Correctly
If you believe someone did something to harm you, the appeals process can make sure everything was applied correctly. It is important to have an appellate attorney working for you who understands the intricacies of Texas courts. We understand what it takes to achieve a judgment that works better for you.
In the process, we will need to file a brief that outlines the arguments that are the basis of your appeal. It could be a family matter, a disputed contract or a tort (a wrongful act that resulted in an injury or the loss of property or someone’s reputation).Prepared to Support You at any Level of Appeal
The court occasionally bases its decision on the briefs alone, but sometimes an oral argument is required. If the judgment is reversed, the appellate court can send the case back to trial court. If affirmed, an appeal can go to the next higher court.
Perhaps you want to appeal a decision or defend your win at trial. In either situation, we can work with you.We Offer a Variety of Services
