Federal & State Appeals Attorneys in Chesterfield

Helping Michigan Clients Seek Justice

If you did not get the result you wanted in a civil or criminal case, you can still seek justice through an appeal. Appealing an unfavorable court decision in front of federal or state courts is never easy, and should always be handled by an attorney with appellate experience.

At Penzien & McBride, we represent clients in state and federal court appeals. Our lawyers handle appeals in civil matters, criminal convictions or sentences, and probate and family matters. Whether you need a federal criminal appeal or an appeal for a probate decision, we have the experience you need to move forward with your case.

Our appellate lawyers help clients who need assistance in front of:

  • The Michigan Court of Appeals
  • The Michigan Supreme Court
  • Any Federal Court of Appeals

Get quality representation you can count on. Reach out to the law office of Penzien & McBride today at (586) 690-4400 to get started on your appeal.

Fighting for Your Rights in Appellate Court

Appeals are distinct from trials and litigation work, and an attorney handling an appeals case must be prepared to manage these different strategies and rules. An appellate lawyer will be able to investigate the details of your case to find the right legal arguments for crafting your case. They can then present your case in a clear, compelling way that covers all aspects of your appeal.

Our team has several years of experience at all levels of the appellate process. We can provide the advice and representation you need to work toward a favorable outcome in your appeal.

Our appellate services include:

  • Evaluating your case to determine the likelihood of success on appeal
  • Making a thorough review of the record in the trial court
  • Looking for errors in:
    • Pretrial motions
    • Decisions
    • Evidentiary rulings
    • The sufficiency of the evidence to support any important findings of fact
  • Looking for mistakes in interpreting statutes, regulations or procedural rules
  • Careful definition of the issues to be raised and presented on appeal
  • Thorough research and development of legal arguments
  • Well-crafted and persuasive appellate briefs

Oral argument before a panel of appellate judges seldom makes a significant difference in the outcome of an appeal. Review of the evidence and clear presentation of your strongest arguments are key to preserving a ruling or reversing an decision. Our knowledgeable Chesterfield appeals attorneys are skilled at making oral arguments on your behalf. We can research and present your best case to the Michigan or Federal appeals court.

Let our experienced team help you with your appeals case. Contact the appeals lawyers at Penzien & McBride at (586) 690-4400 to get started with a consultation.
