Your legal team could make or break your case on appeal

On Behalf of | Sep 29, 2020 | Workplace Discrimination |

Back in January we discussed a court of appeals case where a woman succeeded in showing that the trial court improperly dismissed her gender discrimination case. Looking back at the case, it really highlights the importance of thorough legal preparation before embarking on your claim. Failing to do so could lead to unfavorable results that let perpetrators of illegal harassment and discrimination get away with their reprehensible actions. After all, even if you win your case at trial, you need to be prepared to defend that win on appeal.

Positioning your case for a successful appeal

Most good litigators know that when they try a case, they try it to the court of appeals, meaning that they know that the record created at the trial court level will serve the basis for appellate review. This is because the court of appeals doesn’t hear new evidence. They only consider the evidence presented to the trial court to determine if the right outcome was reached.

What this means for you is that you need an attorney on your side who knows how to make the right objections, properly respond to objections, a make compelling arguments using the facts at hand to speak to the applicable elements of the law. At our firm, we vet every aspect of our clients’ cases to ensure that every pertinent fact comes to light and we know how to beat back aggressive defense tactics.
