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 and unchangeable.

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.
