Sometimes a trial judge, like everyone else, will make a mistake. Some mistakes may be so significant that they change the outcome of the case. In order to address such miscarriages of justice, both our Texas and federal governments have created higher courts, courts of appeal, whose job is to correct significant mistakes made by lower court judges and to also clarify the law.
Our law firm has experience with civil appeals in both the Texas and federal courts. If you believe the judge in your case made a significant error, give us a call. We may be able to help.
Opinions from some of the appeals we have worked on include:
- First Metro. Church of Houston v. Genesis Grp., 616 F. App'x 148 (5th Cir. 2015),
