Your Barrie Appeals Lawyer
Whether you have been unsuccessful at trial or on a motion, or the other party has notified you that they intend to appeal a decision of the court, you should seek legal advice. Appellate advocacy, both written and oral, is distinctly different than trial advocacy. It seeks to identify, characterize and persuade the appellate court that the errors made by the court below fall within the standard of review of the appellate court and that the order or judgment ought to be varied, set aside or remitted back to the court below.
A fresh view by an appellate counsel allows an objective review of the order or judgment, reasons, and record of evidence to determine if there has been a reviewable error.
We have a strong understanding of the special requirements surrounding this process. We have acted for clients on civil, commercial and family appeals. More specifically we have experience in employment appeals, stay of action appeals, defamation appeals, custody and access appeals, and property rights appeals.
We offer the following legal services in appeals:
Acting for appellants, respondents and interveners in appeals and proceedings for leave to appeal.
Advice on possible appeals and proceedings for leave to appeal.
Assistance to other lawyers on preparing appeals and proceedings for leave to appeal.
Advice and representation in all aspects of appeal, including stay of lower court orders and judgments pending appeal, extension of time for appeal, motions to admit fresh evidence, intervening on appeals, procedural aspects of appeal, including motions in the appeal, the preparation of factum and the preparation and presentation of oral argument on appeal.
