We Know New Jersey Appellate Law
Indeed, the attorneys of Dressel/Malikschmitt take particular pride in their research, writing and advocacy abilities–all necessary elements to make an appeal really shine. While most trial lawyers prepare cases to be presented before a judge and jury, appellate proceedings occur before a panel of highly-scrutinous appellate judges and within a strict set of guidelines. Success in any appeal hinges on careful navigation of the specific timing and procedural rules, exceptional logical and oratory skills, and, most importantly, the quality and persuasion of a written brief.
