Civil Appeals

“The best remedy for a lost case is the fresh perspective of a new lawyer experienced with appeals.”

Those who have lost a case are disheartened, tired, and maybe even angry. That is not conducive to a successful civil appeal. Approaching a case on appeal in a different manner is not likely to have the same result as the lower court result.

Civil appeals lawyer Anthony J. (Tony) Vetrano combines appellate experience with a fresh perspective when reviewing a case and assessing the merits of an appeal. Having a fresh perspective allows him to objectively assess possible avenues of appellate relief – free of the emotion and theories of the case on the part of the trial lawyer and client who were unsuccessful at trial. In short, his view of the case is often much closer to that of the appellate court which will decide the case.

If your case was important enough to take to trial, it is important enough to be studied by someone acquainted with and sensitive to the particulars of the appeal. Contact us to discuss your legal options.

civil-appealsAttorney Anthony J. (Tony) Vetrano handles appeals in all civil (noncriminal) cases, in state and federal court.

Lawyers who receive adverse decisions from lower courts might assume they are best qualified to appeal the decision because they “know the case better than anyone else.”

But the case such lawyers “know” is the one that did not prevail. And because such lawyers have been so close to a case, they usually have difficulty “pulling back” to see significant problems with the lower court decision, which problems are often fundamental.

Also, appeal is not merely another stage of litigation or “another bite of the apple”; rather, it is a different arena with its own set of extensive rules.

Therefore, an appeal needs the fresh, objective perspective of an experienced appellate lawyer who has good analytic skills and writes well.

Civil appeals attorney Tony Vetrano has such qualifications.
