Appellate Practice & Appeals

Appeals can occur in both criminal and civil cases. Either party in a criminal or civil case who
believes they were not treated fairly in the trial court has the right to appeal their case to the
appropriate appellate court. Appeals require legal research of the appropriate issues as well as
the preparation of motions and briefs which set forth the legal issues and the subsequent
arguments before the appellate court. Mr. Simkins has prepared and argued numerous appellate
cases involving both criminal and civil issues.
