Denver Appeals Attorney
When you appeal an order or judgment, you are asking a higher court to reverse all or a portion of a lower court’s orders.
If the judge or magistrate who issued orders in your case made one or more legal errors, you may be able to obtain relief from the order by appealing to the Colorado Court of Appeals and/or the Colorado Supreme Court.
Appellate courts do not re-try cases. Instead, appellate courts consider the briefs submitted and the evidence presented at the trial court level.
Keep in mind that you have only a limited time to appeal the trial court’s orders. If you miss a deadline to file an appeal, you are generally barred from appealing those orders at a later time.
An appellate court could affirm the trial court’s decision, reverse or change the trial court’s orders, direct the trial court to conduct a new trial, make additional factual findings or otherwise re-examine the case.
Appeals are a specialized area of family law. We always recommend you hire an appellate lawyer to handle every aspect of your appeal. If you are considering an appeal of your trial court’s orders, please contact Mr. Jarrett at 303-863-0777.
