An appeal is not a simple task. There are strick timelines and the appeal must raise appropriate appellate issues. It is not an opportunity to simply reargue your case.

For a consultation call 612.240.8005.

It sounds like you've already filed a notice of appeal and now need to file your brief. Assuming you're in Minnesota state court, the deadline for filing a brief is relatively short - 30 days from the date of delivery of the transcript or, if applicable, from the date an agreed statement of the record was approved. I have experience writing successful appellate briefs; can provide references. Send me an email or give me a call to arrange a consultation if you'd like. tom@tomjameslaw.com, 320.286.6425.
