Appellate Law

Appellate practice & the supreme court

Beyond the Legal Brief

In the State of Connecticut, an individual has a right to appeal the decision of the trial court in the event that the party loses at trial. As we all know, no government agency or institution is perfect and many times there are legal and factual issues that arise during trial due to technicalities and errors which can result in an unfair judgement in favor of the opposing party.

Unfortunately, this unfair judgment in favor of the opposing party can change the course of your life forever. Whether it is a business dispute, an administrative issue or a felony conviction, it is important to remember that you have a right to investigate your options to overturn a judgment or conviction and get your life back in order. At the Law Offices of Philip Russell, LLC our team of attorneys will evaluate the court record and carefully pinpoint the legal and factual issues that may be brought up for appeal. Our firm takes pride in our ability to make sure that every client receives the attention to detail and diligence that they deserve.

Our team of attorneys are also well versed in administrative appeals including DMV appeals, school expulsions, regulatory licensing and a variety of other appellate cases.
