Don’t Let a Bad Ruling Define Your Future

The law is a very broad field of knowledge, which is why many attorneys find a niche or specialized area of focus. Just as there are personal injury and family law attorneys, there are those who choose to focus on appellate work. Susan J. Clouthier is one such attorney.

Susan has earned a reputation for excellence in appellate law in Texas. Whether you are challenging a criminal conviction or a civil judgment, Ms. Clouthier has the skills, experience and dedication you need to revitalize your legal case and pursue a better outcome.

Changing Your Legal Fate in Criminal Court

The stakes of a criminal proceeding are high. Your future and your freedom are on the line. Susan J. Clouthier fully understands this, and her compassion drives her success in this area. If you are wrongfully convicted or received an unjust sentence, you do not have to accept the outcome.

It’s important to note, however, that a criminal appeal must be based on more than simply disagreement with the outcome. It is usually based on an assertion that the trial court made a fundamental error related to evidence or procedure.

Although civil cases do not involve personal freedom, the stakes can be equally high. An unjust outcome of a civil trial can lead to a variety of undesirable outcomes. As in criminal appeals, a civil appeal is generally based on an assertion of error by the trial court or interpretation and application of the law.

Clouthier Law, PLLC, has significant appellate experience in cases covering many areas of law, including:

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.
