Whether you're trying to hold on to a hard-fought legal victory or trying to turn the tide in your favor, an appeal can be a crucial part of your case.
Because the deadline to appeal in most courts is very short, thirty days or less, effective representation of a party appealing a judgment should begin the day judgment is entered, and perhaps even earlier. For parties resisting appeal, the representation should begin as soon as it becomes apparent that the other party is likely to appeal, which could be when judgment is entered, or when the other party files post-judgment motions indicating a likely appeal.
