Appellate practice is the legal area where attorneys apply to a higher court for a reversal of the decision of the lower court. Appellate cases are presented to a panel of judges as opposed to a jury as in a trial case. The panel will normally decide to reverse, affirm or vacate the decision of the lower court. In an appellate case, an appellate brief is filed and the attorney will argue an oral argument in front of the panel of judges.
The standard of review will depend on the nature of the claimed error. The appellate court will use the trial court record to review what occurred and make a decision on whether the lower court erred or not.
