For trial lawyers with difficult legal and procedural issues, it is essential to work with experienced appellate attorneys. Often called the “law lawyers,” appellate counsel are important to the trial team because of the two primary differences between trials and appeals: the audience and the subject matter.
At trial, the audience is a jury, and trial lawyers seek to persuade jurors that an operative set of facts did or did not occur. Another audience member is often overlooked: the judge. Appellate lawyers help to persuade judges, both at trial and in the appellate courts, that the law requires – or should require – a favorable outcome for the client. With their attention to the law as subject matter and the judge as part of the audience, appellate lawyers bring a different approach and a depth of training and experience to the legal team.
