In both the state and federal systems, the party who loses at trial has the right to file an appeal. If you won your case at trial (or before trial), then you may have to defend your victory on appeal. If you lost your case at trial, then an appeal may be your only hope. In either case, finding thorough, thoughtful appellate counsel is critically important.
