An appeal is not like a trial
Bringing a case on appeal is not the same as bringing an initial case to trial court. When you appeal the decision of a lower court, the role of the lawyer is to prove that there was a problem with the trial or with the judge's decision. Appeals rely upon legal facts and precedence and are decided upon documents.
In assessing whether you can appeal a prior court decision, Mr. Robinson will review the transcripts looking for errors or ambiguity that can be exploited.
