Correcting Previous Court Judgments to Enforce What’s Fair & Reasonable

After the legal process, many decisions come down to the judge and jury. Because these processes can be long and daunting for many going through them, a natural assumption is that the final ruling of the court is set in stone, and those participating are now obligated to abide by those said rulings. Yes, those under the weight of the ruling are required to abide by it, but not all court rulings are set it stone. Sometimes, an appeal is possible.

Appellate practice is the practice of revisiting what could be deemed an unjust court ruling. For many reasons, most of them having to do with a failure to adhere to what we know to be constitutional legal practices, you may be able to appeal your decision and fight for a fairer one.

Contact our Jackson, MS appellate attorneys to discuss the options in your case.

What Are Grounds for an Appeal?

Before an appeal can even occur, you and your counsel need to convince the court that there are legitimate grounds for one. An appeal cannot be made simply because a court ruling did not go in the favor of one party; they can only be made when there was some form error or foul play.

An appeal may be made if the following events occurred in the original proceedings:

  • Judicial error
  • Misconduct from the opposing counsel
  • Tampering with the jury
  • Incompetent help from your original counsel

These can be difficult to prove; it takes a keen and experienced legal team to identify constitutional flaws in a past ruling and show them to a new judge and jury. We at Shows & Smith Law Firm have over 70 years of combined legal experience. With the career focus in appellate practice by attorney John S. Grant IV, we have all the skills and resources required to fight for your fair outcome in an appeal.
