Often, a trial court’s final decision does not mean the end of the case. Obtaining the best possible result at trial means nothing if that result cannot be affirmed on appeal. Conversely, a defeat at the trial court level can turn into victory through a successful appeal.
A successful appeal requires a different set of knowledge and different tactics than a successful trial. BKR’s Appellate Practice Group has broad experience handling appeals in the Indiana Supreme Court, the Indiana Court of Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit on a wide variety of subjects. We know the unique rules and procedures of each court. More importantly, we have the experience to identify the issues that will be important to an appellate court and to argue those issues in a professional, persuasive manner.Whether it is continuing to represent you after trial or providing a fresh look at a case that was tried by another attorney, we have the experience to assist you with even the most complicated appeal.
If you have questions about an appeal or would like to learn more about BKR’s Appellate Practice Group, call Mike Wilkins at 571-3600.
