It is vital to have an experienced appeals attorney handling your case, one who is skilled at navigating the Federal appellate process.
The rules, procedures, and strategy used in federal appellate proceedings are very different from those in state courts of appeal. Federal appellate courts have very strict deadlines. Your entire appeal could be dismissed if you are a day late filing your brief, and extensions are rarely granted.
Also, your appeal will be decided by an appeals court — usually a three-judge panel, not a jury. There are usually no appearances in court, and no new evidence is gathered in an appellate review. The court considers only the evidence presented at trial and the written arguments of the parties involved. This is why it is critical that you have experienced counsel who can produce a persuasive written argument handling your federal appeal.
