Dealing with an Appeal in Minneapolis?
Help from an Experienced Minneapolis & St. Paul Appellate Attorney
Did you just lose your case on a motion or after it was tried? Did you
just win your case and now the other side has filed an appeal? MKT Law
has significant experience with appeals to the state and federal courts
of appeals. We handle civil and criminal issues on appeal if you are trying
to reverse a disappointing outcome or have to respond to an appeal to
defend your win from the trial court.
Appellate work is very different from what occurred in your case so far.
On appeal, you need an attorney who is particularly attuned to how these
reviewing courts view a case. You need a detail-oriented appellate lawyer
who will comb through the record to find the relevant legal issues and
present them in the most favorable way possible. At
MKT Law, PLC, we will put together comprehensive and compelling legal arguments on
your behalf by using our unique experience and acute understanding of
how appellate courts operate and make decisions.
When you work with Attorney Mark K. Thompson and our legal team at MKT
Law, PLC, you get an attorney who has handled numerous appeals to the
Minnesota Court of Appeals, the Minnesota Supreme Court, and cases on
appeal to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals. Since 2007, Mark has taught
appellate procedure at the University of Minnesota Law School to upper
level law students as an adjunct professor and co-director for the school’s
Civil Rights Moot Court program. Call MKT Law, PLC today and ask to speak
with Mark about your appeal.
Honest Assessment of Your Case on Appeal
An appeal may not always be the right choice and it’s an important
decision to make. You will receive straightforward advice and honest answers
from our lawyers at MKT Law, PLC when making such a decision.
When evaluating your options for an appeal, we are likely to ask you to revisit:
- The legal basis for the decision in your case
- Use of evidence during the case
- Post-trial motions
- Any procedural irregularities
Review Your Case With a Minneapolis Appeals Lawyer – Call Our Firm
In a perfect world, you are able to hire an attorney for your appeal who
was not on the case before and can see it from a fresh and new perspective
— very much like the judges and justices at the appellate courts
will look at your case. During an appeal, the court is reviewing the record
and decision that was made by the trial court. There is no new evidence
presented and you have to make your case off what has already occurred.
This is significantly different than trial court work.
You need experience with the process and an attorney who understands the
appellate rules and how the appellate courts make their decisions. In
order to have the best chance of winning on appeal, you want an appellate
lawyer on your side who has a history of handling appeals and possesses
a deep knowledge of the law. You find both of these traits when you work
with Attorney Mark K. Thompson and our team at MKT Law, PLC.
dedicate ourselves at our firm to obtaining just results. Due to our knowledge and attention to the details that matter, we are
often able to uncover errors made in the trial process that can increase
your odds of winning on appeal.
