State and Federal Appeals Can Be Quite Complicated

State and federal appeals are very different, because appellate courts are different. To be successful in an appeal, a litigant must demonstrate that there was a mistake of law, fact, or procedure that affected the ruling. Arguing this can be very complicated. State and federal appeals involve case law, court rules, and statutes, not to mention examining how judges operate. Briefs, motions, and arguments also need much research into the trial case, including transcript reviews and error identifications.

An attorney must also understand the differences between state and federal appeals, and different cases may be subject to different standards of review and processing.

Attorney Edwards offers unique experience to his clients in state and federal appeals, as he has argued cases in the Virginia Court of Appeals, the Virginia Supreme Court, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
