Do you believe that your case was not decided correctly? In Iowa, you are entitled to have your case reviewed by the Iowa Court of Appeals.
Filing an appeal is much different than arguing a case in the lower courts. The appeals process is done by filing a written brief to the Court of Appeals. This is not a second trial.
Appellant attorneys argue, in writing, about the legal errors that may have led to the decision in the trial court. It’s not often that the Court of Appeals allows an oral hearing, so research and good writing is crucial in this process.
A well written appeal will drastically increase your chances in getting relief from the higher court.
At Vonnahme Law, we offer FREE initial consultations.
We will review your Court Order first, schedule a time to talk with you about your options in addressing the problems with your case, and give you an opportunity to decide if you want to pursue an appeal. You can appeal all or even just a small portion of your case.
Appeals must be made in a limited time period after the final order of the Trial Court. This time period is usually within thirty (30) days. Time is limited, so it is important not to delay if you believe your case was decided incorrectly.
