The purpose of an appeal in Texas is to review decisions of the trial court or lower tribunal to determine if legal error has occurred. Legal error is harmful if it affects the outcome of the case. Appeals are not trials and are not intended to give a litigant a second opportunity to re-argue the facts of his or her case. The appellate court does not serve as a second jury. Texas appellate courts will review motions for summary judgment, jury trials, bench trials, and appeals of all final and non-final orders for lower court error. We can appear before the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeal for the United States and the Supreme Court of the United States.

The Texas Courts of Appeal is a judicial system consisting of a set of fourteen appellate courts. The Courts of Appeal do not retry cases or hear testimony; rather, they rule on an appeal based on the record from the original trial or proceeding. The issues for review can range from incorrect application of a law and incorrect admissibility of evidence to insufficient evidence, and in rare cases, the ineffective assistance of trial counsel.

Our attorneys file a written argument known as a brief detailing the issues, which includes challenges to the trail court findings or rulings, precedents set by previous court rulings, and applicable statutes. The opposing party then files a responsive brief. After the briefs have been filed, the case is assigned to a panel of justices. An oral argument may sometimes be scheduled, which gives both parties an opportunity to argue their positions and the appellate judges to question attorneys on the issues raised.
After reviewing the brief and oral argument, a decision is reached, and a written statement known as an opinion is then filed. In a state appeal, decisions taken by the Courts of Appeal can be subject to discretionary review by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. In federal cases, decisions based on the U.S Constitution and federal statutes may be subject to discretionary review by the US Supreme Court.
If the appellant has lost an appeal, he/she has the chance to move up the legal chain and file for post-conviction relief. This is a long process, especially for serious felonies, but one worth pursuing to challenge guilty verdicts and rectify violations of constitutional rights.

Obtain a form petition for discretionary review: Texas-Petition-for-Discretionary-Review-Form. The court of appeals rejected the claim. On December 22, 2016, Appellant filed a petition for discretionary review, asking us: Did the court of appeals err in holding that Section 133.102(a)(1) of the Texas Local Government Code by which the “consolidated court cost” was assessed is not facially unconstitutional?
