Liat Sadler represents clients through all stages of the appellate process. Generally speaking, nothing new can be presented during an appeal. Only what has been presented during trial can be reargued in the appeal process. What was presented during trial or an initial hearing is called the “record on appeal.” Prevailing on appeal, then, depends not only on whether your claim is supported by law but also on the adequacy of the record on appeal.
Ms. Sadler provides clients with an intelligent and honest assessment of his or her case and the chances of prevailing on appeal. She discusses the merits of the case with the client, and we make a joint decision about whether or not to proceed. Thereafter, she provides representation for the client at all stages of the appellate process, through briefing and argument in the appellate courts.Contact
