Why isn’t my lawyer appealing my case?

Many lawyers don’t appeal cases because it is a very time-consuming and expensive process that comes with no guarantees of success in reversing the original court’s decision.

We recently appealed a very straightforward case where a client had slipped and fallen on a cracked sidewalk. In addition to paying for a specialized lawyer ($10,000) there were several thousands of dollars in printing costs. We strongly believed our client deserved to be compensated for her fall and worked hard to successfully overturn the original ruling that she had no case.

Each case comes with its own pros and cons that you should discuss with your attorney. Have any questions about a specific case? Contact our experienced lawyers, who will answer all your questions and let you know what you can expect from an appeal in your case.
