Appeals in the Maryland Courts
Giving your case another chance
Meng Law does not rest until your case has been fully resolved. If your initial result is unfavorable and there are grounds for an appeal, we proceed to an appellate review in the appropriate circuit or appellate court. Mr. Meng and Ms. Mitchell are well-versed in appellate matters and tenaciously pursues a reversal if you are the one appealing or an affirmance if the other side files the appeal.
What are the grounds for an appeal?
An order or judgment may be challenged on appeal based on a legal error that occurred in a trial or otherwise. We demonstrate that the error had a negative effect on the outcome of your case. A verdict may be reversed on grounds including:
- Insufficient evidence
- Misapplication of the relevant legal standards
- Misinterpretation of the pertinent law
- Substantive procedural errors of law
Mr. Meng and Ms. Mitchell have a keen understanding of appellate procedure in Maryland. He reviews the history of the case closely for mistakes and is adept at finding errors that may be a basis for appeal. He is also adept at defending the decision in the lower court.
What kinds of cases can be appealed?
At the appropriate time any case result may be appealed if a mistake was made. We help you appeal or defend a decision in any area of our litigation practice:
If the circuit court does not accept our arguments, we take your case to the Maryland Court of Appeals, the state’s highest authority for the correction of trial errors.
