Appellate law refers to the process of bringing cases through the lengthy appeals court system in the United States. Essentially, if you have an unfavorable ruling against you in a case, you have the option to appeal the case to a higher court.
While having the option to appeal is one of the most sacred rights of American citizens to ensure they not only have their day in court, but that the court is fair and just in its ruling, the appellate process can be a lengthy and stressful affair. As such, appealing a case requires the scrutiny of trial records, transcripts, and other materials to analyze whether or not an appeals case is called for.
