Michigan Appellate Lawyers
Fighting for a Better Outcome for Our Clients Nationwide
Sometimes, courts make mistakes. Judges are not infallible, and they may make rulings based on the wrong laws, that disregards vital evidence, or that do not comply with Michigan statutes. Court officials can make procedural mistakes that cost you a chance at justice. You may feel lost or unheard, but Fieger Law hears you—and we can help fight to reverse the court’s mistake by filing an appeal.
Appeals are different from standard legal cases because you are not just arguing guilt or innocence. Rather, in an appeal, you are asking an appellate court to evaluate, then reverse or uphold the decision that a lower court judge or jury made.
A lower court judge may rule that a case does not have the merits to continue to trial. An appeal to a higher court may overrule the lower court’s decision.
Appeals are often a client’s last option, so it is always a vital procedure—when you’re facing the most important stakes of your life, an appeal could determine your future.
Why Fieger Law Is the Firm You Need
Fieger Law is one of the only firms in Michigan that has its own appellate department to handle appeals. Our Michigan appellate lawyers have the necessary skills and experience to fight and win your appeal. Because an appeal requires a high level of brief-writing skill and legal knowledge, not every lawyer is equipped to handle an appellate case.
Typically, appeals tend to be very research-intensive, requiring appeals attorneys to find “grounds for appeal.” This means finding existing legal cases, or past precedent to provide a reason why the lower court’s decision should be reversed. It’s time-consuming and requires additional expertise in writing, as well as knowledge of the appellate court.
If you have a civil or criminal case that has been denied by a lower court, then an appeal may be necessary. We are appeals experts, working for you. We fight hard, and we’re not afraid to win.
