Civil Appeals

Just like trying a case in district court, winning an appeal requires specific knowledge and skills. If you are appealing a decision, knowing how to frame the issues for appeal can be more important than oral argument. If you are responding to an appeal, you need to take advantage of the strengths that made you a winner in the district court, as well as defend the reasoning of the district court judge. Marty Carlson has experience handling both state and federal appeals, and can use that experience to help you craft an appellate strategy that gives you the greatest possible chance of success.
