The Drexler Law Group can handle your appeal of a district court judge’s ruling and can assist you with reviewing a magistrate judge’s ruling.
Certain concrete deadlines exist when pursuing an appeal.
The Drexler Law Group is dedicated to pursuing your appeal and will analyze the appellate issues from several angles to maximize your chance at prevailing. If you are notified that a favorable decision is being appealed, The Drexler Law Group can assist you in aggressively defending the trial court’s ruling.
The appeals process is not quick. This is frustrating to be sure. However, if a real legal issue exists, it should be appealed; otherwise, the court will continue to apply bad law or misapply the law to your case, which can affect you for years or decades.
Once a Notice of Appeal is filed, the trial court has a brief period of time to transmit or forward the official record on appeal to the Court of Appeals. The Court of Appeals will then establish deadlines for the submission of the three main pleadings filed:
At times when both parties believe that the court committed an error of law, the responding party can also file a Cross-Appeal.
A party appealing or defending an appeal can request a hearing (called an oral argument) in which the attorneys will appear before the Court of Appeals to argue for their clients’ respective positions. Following the oral argument, the panel of the Court of Appeals hearing the case will deliberate or consider the arguments made in the appeal pleadings and oral argument and will issue a formal opinion indicating whether the trial court did in fact enter an inappropriate final order.
Given the complexities of appellate practice and the procedural requirements of appeals, retaining The Drexler Law Group will give you the confidence and peace of mind knowing that your appeal is being pursued and that you have a group of sharp, legal minds working behind the scenes for you and your appeal.
Similarly, our attorneys have handled criminal law appeals and can assist those defending themselves from unjust application of our criminal justice system. See our Criminal Defense section for additional information.
If either party disagrees with the appellate court’s decision, that party may ask that same court to rehear the matter or may ask the Colorado Supreme Court to review the decision. If the Colorado Supreme Court accepts your petition (and it doesn’t have to), the process is largely the same as the first appeal process but usually takes less time.
If you think the court has made a mistake in your family law, criminal or civil case, don’t hesitate to contact The Drexler Law Group as soon as possible.
This service is affordable and allows our clients to see the real legal issues and the arguments to support the appeal before making the decision to commit additional resources.
