This week’s Tip of the Week video, featuring Gathings Law Attorney, Will Lattimore, talks about the appeals process. If you are unsatisfied with the result of a trial you can appeal. This means that your case will be sent to a court with a higher authority in the hopes that they will reverse the decision of the original court. When your case is tried in a state court in Alabama, your case would be appealed to the Alabama Supreme Court. When your case is tried in Federal Court in Alabama, Georgia, or Florida, your appeal would first go to the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals, and any further appeal would be to the Supreme Court of the United States.
We here at Gathings Law do everything we can for our clients to get the best final result for our clients whether that is a trial or an appeal.
