Appeals

One of the great things about our court system is the ability to appeal a final order. If you believe the trial judge in your case incorrectly decided the issues, then you may be able to take your case to the appellate court and ask that court to review the order.

An appeal is a very nuanced and labor intensive process that requires the appellate attorney to look at everything done at the trial level, review the applicable laws, and then present an argument to the appellate court about why there should be a different result. In Tarrant County, our appellate court is the Second Court of Appeals, which is located in Fort Worth, Texas.

Scott Lindsey is board certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He and our other attorneys have presented arguments to the Courts of Appeals and the Texas Supreme Court on various issues.
