Appellate Issues

There can be many reasons a client may want to pursue an appeal, whether civil or criminal.  Susan has had extensive experience in the Appellate Court in both areas.  Whether initiating an appeal or responding, Susan is seasoned and confident in her research and writing abilities, as well as her skill set in presenting oral arguments before the three-judge panel. 

If you are considering an appeal of a final order, time is of the essence.  There are very specific rules that set forth deadlines for clients to file a Notice of Appeal or to respond to an initial appellate brief.  If you miss these deadlines, you very well may be precluded from pursuing your appeal or defense.  Therefore, it is critical that you contact The Suriano Law Firm LLC as soon as a final order has been filed, if you are planning on seeking relief in the Court of Appeals.
