Appeals & Process

Massachusetts Appellate Lawyers

Our appellate attorneys at Denner Criminal Defense Group are known for effectively representing their clients’ interests in state and federal appeals courts. We act for those seeking to uphold a favorable result and those who hope to overturn an unjust ruling. In the process, we have made new law in a variety of areas.

Handling an appeal

We file the required notice of appeal in a timely way. It is important that an individual or corporation thinking about appealing a lower court decision take action quickly as there are time limits on when an appeal can be filed. We make sure that the required transcript and other documents are filed correctly. We research the legal points at issue in the appeal and we draft well written persuasive argument briefs aggressively presenting our client’s positions. Our well written briefs combined with our attorneys outstanding oral arguments provide our clients with their best chance of being successful.

Identifying the right issue for a successful appeal

The purpose of an appeal is to determine issues of law, rather than matters of fact. We are able to identify the best legal issue on which to appeal, inappropriate instructions to the jury, and mistakes in the application of relevant law.

Examples of appellate cases

We have appealed or defended decisions in cases involving:

  • Life Insurance contracts
  • Visitation rights
  • Contract claims
  • Family law

In these and in all appeals, our attorneys have prevailed on procedural issues or on matters of law. We handle appeals of cases initially tried by other attorneys. We also appeal and defend our own cases.
