Appellate Practice


Your case is over in District Court, but something doesn't seem right...


NOW WHAT?


An appeal in Minnesota means taking your case out of the hands of a District Court Judge and presenting it to a panel of judges at the Minnesota Court of Appeals.  While the courts have removed barriers to handling one's own appeal, it is still a complicated process fraught with pitfalls.  It is highly advisable to hire an attorney to help.


I have argued before the Court of Appeals in both civil and criminal cases, in a variety of areas.  Effective appellate practice requires communicating your argument clearly and concisely to the judges and then reinforcing it through oral argument.  Unlike matters before District Courts, the record is closed and all the evidence has been entered.


I truly enjoy appellate practice and have demonstrated success before the higher court.  If you feel that a mistake was made in your case and you wish to explore your options at the appellate level...
