APPELLATE ATTORNEY VERSUS TRIAL ATTORNEY
If you've already been through a trial with your attorney, chances are you've developed a good relationship and may want him or her to handle the next phase of your case. However, that may not be the right option for you or your attorney.
Why Should I Get Two Different Lawyers?
Trial lawyers and appellate lawyers often have vastly different skill sets. Trials require the skills of a lawyer who has experience in the courtroom and making a strong case to jurors. Trial lawyers need to be very conscious of multiple, rapidly approaching deadlines, and must also be extremely careful in their negotiations with opposing counsel. Because they are trying to persuade a defendant's peers rather than fellow lawyers, they also must be skilled in presenting facts and in breaking down the law into understandable terms.
By contrast, appeals often involve large amounts of writing, legal research, and arguing often dense legal doctrines before a judge or a panel of judges. Appellate lawyers are accustomed to having enough time to research legal issues in depth and write long briefs with intricate arguments. They come to the court room extremely well prepared and become experts on the cases before them and the applicable laws. An oral argument, in which an appellate attorney faces a barrage of questions from appellate judges, requires a very different skill set.
