The Important Role of a Tennessee Appeals Lawyer
Brighter DaySM Law’s appellate attorney for the Court of Appeals and Tennessee Supreme Court has the difficult job of convincing a judge or a higher court that a case is worthy of being reopened via refiling or re-petitioning on sound legal grounds. There are many reasons an already decided case can or should be reopened for reexamination by the court and potentially a new determination for those involved in the case. Convincing the higher court that your petition and case meet these grounds is where the challenge lies.
Our appellate attorney for the Court of Appeals and Tennessee Supreme Court can help you with this process. If you received a verdict or case determination that you feel is unfair or you have other grounds for wanting your case reopened (we discuss these grounds below), then contact the Tennessee appeals lawyer with Brighter DaySM Law today.
Our Tennessee Appeals Lawyer Will Help You Demonstrate That Your Case Deserves an Appeal
There are specific conditions under which an appeal can be filed. Cases lost in one court cannot be appealed and reopened in a higher court without reason. Your appellate attorney for the Court of Appeals and Tennessee Supreme Court will study your case, the evidence that was used to decide the case, the laws that apply to the case, and will investigate whether there were any errors, omissions, mistakes, or illegal activity that can be used to render the lower court’s order as incorrect or void. Without doing this, you may not be able to open a new case and appeal the lower court’s decision.
Examples of when, how, and why a case can be appealed by a Tennessee appeals lawyer include:
- Legal or administrative errors or omissions, including the suppression of evidence;
- The incorrect application of applicable laws or the use of irrelevant laws to your case (these mistakes must have had a role in determining the outcome of your case in the lower court);
- Violations of the rights of parties involved in the case, if any;
- Disproportionately harsh sentences that are not commensurate to the crimes or actions involved in the case.
In addition to the above, you cannot file an appeal without evidence, and you cannot file an appeal without first explaining to the court why you want to file an appeal. Without the evidence or legal justifications needed for an appeal, you will have to live with the orders of the lower court. We are here to help, so contact our appellate attorney for the Court of Appeals and Tennessee Supreme Court so that we can review your case and determine the best course of action for you.
Seeking an Appropriate Outcome with Our Tennessee Appeals Lawyer
If your petition for an appeal is accepted and you get to file your appeal, we will handle your case and will strive to obtain a favorable ruling by the court.
Depending on the specifics of your case and the evidence available to our team, your appeal can end in one of four ways:
- The original order of the lower court may be reconfirmed by the appeals court;
- The appeals court may change the lower court’s ruling;
- The appeals court may dismiss your case if there are legal grounds for doing so;
- The appeals court can send the case back to the lower court for additional proceedings.
A successful appeal hinges on having the right evidence and the right legal arguments needed to win your case. Only evidence that was submitted in the original case can be used in the appeals case, but if there is evidence of, for example, errors, fraud, duress, omissions, or other actions or activity that can nullify the orders of the lower court, our team will find it and will fight your case in appeals accordingly.
