Filing an Appeal in New Jersey
There are countless ways a trial can go wrong, resulting in an unfair verdict. This is why the appeals process exists. If you’ve been handed a verdict that was influenced by bias, misinformation, inadmissible evidence, misinterpretation of the law, or other legal errors, an appeal gives you the opportunity to make your case again. In most cases, you have up to 45 days from the date of a final judgement to file an appeal.
The appeals process, however, can be complex and time consuming. A successful appeal requires extensive research, meticulously written briefs, and a thorough understanding of court rules. Working with an experienced appellate attorney will give you the best possible chance of success.
