Appeals

The attorneys at the DeWitt Law Firm have handled numerous appeals, including appellate work done at both the District Court of Appeals and the Florida Supreme Court levels.

Appellate law has different procedures and standards than trial level practice. As such, it is important to work with an attorney that has knowledge of both appellate practice and the area of law that is applicable to the issue(s) on appeal.

If you believe that you may have an issue that is appropriate for an appellate action, please call us immediately. Keep in mind that an appeal must generally be filed within 30 days of rendition of the final judgment, and failure to file for an appeal timely could forfeit your rights to appellate relief.
