Legal Frequently Asked Questions


How do I know if I should file an appeal?

“Filing an appeal is a complicated, time sensitive process. It’s not the kind of thing you need to undertake lightly. It means you’ve already lost in a lower court and you are asking a higher court to reverse that result. In many ways it’s your last chance to get the result you want. A lot of other firms might expect you to pay up front for the entire cost of an appeal. At E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, what we do is we charge an initially retainer that’s a fraction of the entire appellate retainer cost in order to analyze your case and properly advise you about your chances of success on appeal. We’ll give you our best guess as to whether or not you should go forward. But we leave it up to you whether at that point you want to undertake the entire expense of an appeal and you want to go forward with it. We’ll never ask you to pay for something that we think has no chance of success.”
