Appealing Your Case
Working with Shaheen & Gordon, P.A.
After the uncertainty, stress and expense of a trial or final hearing,
it can be devastating to get a decision that treats you unfairly, misunderstands
the evidence, or even makes a mistake applying the law to your case. When
this happens, you almost always have the right to have your case reviewed
by the New Hampshire Supreme Court. The Supreme Court has the power to
reverse bad decisions and correct lower court errors, but you must act
quickly to appeal your case before the unfavorable order becomes final
The New Hampshire trial attorneys at Shaheen & Gordon, P.A. have argued
over 100 civil appeals to the Supreme Court of New Hampshire. We’ve
handled watershed cases that have changed state law. Our appellate lawyers
have expanded the rights of injured workers, clarified the financial obligations
of divorced parents, changed the legal standards used when evaluating
probate estates, and more. The appellate lawyers at Shaheen & Gordon,
P.A. know how to review decisions and identify the issues that are likely
to capture the Supreme Court’s attention, and can guide you through
the procedural minefields that might limit your ability to correct mistakes
made in your case - or even prevent you from arguing them altogether.
Bringing a case to the Supreme Court is quite different from presenting
a case to a Superior Court judge, jury or administrative hearings officer.
The Supreme Court decides most of its cases by reviewing detailed written
briefs that explain the mistakes made by the lower decision maker. Clear,
effective, and persuasive writing is critically important. And in the
rare instance where the Supreme Court wants your lawyer to appear for
questioning at an oral argument, experience matters. You need a lawyer
who has argued cases in front of those justices, knows what issues are
important to them, and knows how to convince them that your case deserves
a second look.
