Are you unhappy with a court decision? Do you feel as if the judge made an error, failed to see the facts or a combination of the two? You should contact an appeal lawyer right away as you might have grounds for an appeal.
Appeals allow a court of higher authority to review a decision and all its related facts and documentation to determine if the decision was rendered in accordance with the law. Should you feel your decision was not, an appeals lawyer can help.
Our firm’s practice conducts appeals to any court in Ontario or the Supreme Court of Canada.
Why Hire An Appeals Lawyer
Conducting an appeal is a highly specialized process. The skills needed in reviewing large volumes of documents and finding grounds for appeal require focus and the ability to spot important issues.
I have a wealth of experience handling appeals in the Court of Appeal for Ontario, many of them on issues of importance to the administration of justice in Ontario. I have also written and spoken at conferences in the areas of oral and written advocacy and appellate practice. I have appeared as counsel on interventions for the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association in the Superior Court of Justice, the Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada.
