Is An Appeal A Cost-Effective Option?
It can be difficult to decide whether to pursue an appeal. Undoubtedly, each case is different, and there are many things the party considering an appeal should take into account.
It is advisable to discuss the possibility of pursuing an appeal with an appellate attorney. At Korshak & Associates, P.A., we can evaluate your case and give you an honest assessment of your options. An appeal may or may not be right in your situation, and we will give you the facts so you can make that decision.
Is An Appeal Worth It?
There are costs involved in pursuing an appeal, but each case can vary widely.
Generally speaking, the more complex the case — the more individual issues that are to be appealed — the more costly the case will be.
If the case is more straightforward — if there are one or two issues that you are seeking to resolve — it will likely cost less.
If you believe the previous court inappropriately or incorrectly applied the law in your case, it is wise to do a cost-benefit analysis of pursuing an appeal. This can help you as you work to make a decision.
There are important questions you should ask yourself as you consider your options:
- Is the possibility of winning at appeal worth it, from a financial perspective?
- What happens if I lose at appeal?
- What are the potential benefits and risks of pursuing an appeal?
Answering these questions may be difficult, but you do not have to make the decision alone. You may wish to schedule a consultation with an appellate attorney from our office to discuss your specific options.
