Appellate Law

Serving Broward, Palm Beach & Miami-Dade Counties

If a court has ruled against you in a civil or criminal case, you may want to appeal to a higher court. Appellate courts have their own detailed procedural rules, which can make taking an appeal a complicated and confusing process. Moreover, success on appeal requires not only a solid understanding of the legal issues in your case, but also the ability to craft a persuasive written argument. For these reasons, it’s important to work with an appellate lawyer.

Additionally, because you generally have a relatively short window of time to decide whether you want to file an appeal, it’s important to consult with an appellate lawyer as soon as possible.

Prior to becoming a trial attorney, Mr. Howard served as a judicial staff attorney to The Honorable Mark E. Polen at The Fourth District Court of Appeal – one of the five intermediate appellate courts in the State of Florida, which decides every appeal – both civil and criminal cases – filed from the trial courts in both Broward and Palm Beach Counties.
