Civil Appeals with Our Norman Business Lawyers

Make Sure Your Voice is Heard in Your Civil Appeal

At Rick Dane Moore and Associates Law Firm, we make it easy for you to understand your options when it comes to civil appeals for your business law matters. An appeal is not a retrial - instead, an appeal seeks to prove that the court made a mistake in passing the original verdict. In the legal system, appeals function as a way to ensure the rights of all parties have been appropriately respected, the law has been correctly interpreted, and that no misconduct occurred within the court.

Business law matters that can be appealed include, but are not limited to:

  • Contract disputes
  • Partnership negotiations
  • Insurance claims
  • Product liability
  • Property disputes
  • Business transactions
  • Class actions
  • Labor and employment claims

Don't Like the Verdict? You Have Options.

At the trial level, a single judge likely presided over the proceedings. This judge has his or her own understanding of the law. Sometimes, an appeal addresses a party's concerns that the judge either misunderstood or misinterpreted the law. During an appeal, several judges are brought in to review the original trial. These judges, together, review the details of the case, the claims made during the proceedings, and the judge's final decision.

If these judges, together, come to the conclusion that the original judge inappropriately applied the law, your appeal may be 'reversed and remanded'. This means the case returns to court and a new decision is evaluated. The appeals court's judges' opinion is taken into account when the new decision is made.

If the appeals court judges do not find fault with your original trial, they will affirm the previous court's decision. In general, this stands as the final decision and you are not able to file a second appeal. Call our business lawyers in Norman at (405) 703-6552 today.
