We’re Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Palm Beach Appellate Lawyers Providing Sophisticated Legal Assistance
Let Our Seasoned Appellate Lawyers in Miami, FL Help
If you have received a verdict that is contrary to your interests, the circumstances may be such that you have a reasonable argument to reverse the decision of the lower court and secure a favorable result. Successfully appealing the decision of a lower court is a fundamentally challenging endeavor that requires intimate knowledge of a different set of procedural requirements and legal rules.
At Young, Berman, Karpf & Karpf, P.A., our team of board-certified litigators boasts decades of experience advocating for clients in appellate disputes (both in state and federal courts) centered around family law issues and business-related issues. Over the years, our Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and Palm Beach appellate lawyers have handled hundreds of appeals in a variety of practice areas and have developed real-world tools that allow us to successfully navigate high-level appellate disputes.
Appellate-Level Litigation Demands Legal Savvy
Appeals are heard by a panel of judges and feature a number of unique prohibitions and procedures. New evidence may not be introduced at the appellate level. Only evidence introduced at trial may be used.
Generally speaking, the most successful appellate-level litigators are seasoned attorneys who approach disputes with a more intellectual outlook. As there is no new discovery, witness testimony or jury, the case strategy employed by attorneys in appellate work is dependent on savvy legal analysis — it does not rely on clever positioning in discovery or at trial. Appellate attorneys must specifically look towards the decision of the lower court and how they can undermine the unfavorable verdict on the basis of legal error or insufficient evidence.
At Young, Berman, Karpf & Karpf, P.A., we have the background and training necessary to effectively engage complex, appellate-level work. For example, one of our principals, Andrew S. Berman, is a board-certified Appellate Practice Lawyer (granted by the Florida Bar Board of Legal Specialization and Education).
Many firms claim to be capable of handling appeals, but in truth, they rarely try cases to conclusion. By contrast, we have a long history of success in taking cases all the way through to trial and, in the event of an unfavorable verdict, appealing the decision of the lower court. Simply put, we are comfortable with the higher stakes and sophisticated nature of appellate work.
