Appeals in the state of Florida

The Florida federal appeal attorneys at our law firm can handle civil appeals in Florida and before the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals. The appellate law firm may also represent clients in habeas corpus and criminal appeals. During a federal trial, the judge has the discretion to allow witnesses or new evidence from either party. If the judge misapplies the law, allows evidence or facts to come into the court or be heard by a jury, the grounds for appealing become stronger and the chances of success increase.
