Civil Appeals

The Focused, Accomplished Support You Need in Your Civil Appeal

If a civil judgment did not go as you wanted, remember, you have options. You can try to appeal a bad judgement 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 judgement 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 judgement 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. Attorney Clouthier is prepared to assist you in both state and federal appeals.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
“Susan has worked tirelessly for years filing appeals on my behalf. Finally her efforts and persistence has paid off. After serving 11 and 1/2 years, I was released from Federal Prison and have been able to return to my family and help once again with raising my children [now age 16]. My family and I owe a debt of gratitude which we will never be able to repay. The love we feel for Susan is immeasurable.” Joe R.
★★★★★
“Our case was complicated and time critical. Susan took charge of the entire process, keeping us updated with texts, phone calls and emails. She worked through a Holiday weekend to make certain our case got the attention and success required to bring our loved one home. It is also very important to know that she has sophisticated research tools, which are IMPERATIVE when you have to navigate through the Appeals process.” Jack H.
★★★★★
“Susan is a thoroughly dedicated professional that has a unique empathy for cases that reveal the misapplication of justice that so often affects those with limited resources. Through her tireless efforts, one of my best friends had six years reduced from his sentence. The family and I will be forever grateful to Susan.” James P.
