Demystifying Appellate Law

When courts hand down decisions that seem unfair, those subjected to the decisions often hear the people in their lives telling them to appeal those decisions. However, fewer people appeal decisions than you might think, and most who choose not to appeal do so because of one or both of two reasons: fear and uncertainty.

Taking The Fear And Uncertainty Out Of The Appeals Process

At the law firm of Michael R. Slaughter, our founding attorney has a reputation as an authority on appellate law in Kentucky. His experience in the area and his record of success, which includes three landmark cases, allow him to take the fear and uncertainty out of the appeals process. Thanks to our lawyer's experience, he can explain the appeals process to you clearly from the beginning until the end.

The Keys To Our Appeals Success

For appeals in courtrooms in Jefferson, Oldham and Bullitt counties and beyond, whether after a divorce or due to another legal issue in family law or another of our practice areas, we use a proven approach, which includes:

  • Research: We make sure we have examined all the evidence from your previous case and thoroughly review all of the associated documents, including the court transcripts.
  • Exhibits: We provide extensive exhibits, making it easier for judges to do their initial reviews, while also saving them time.
  • Simplicity: Attorney Slaughter approaches his briefs conversationally because judges are like everyone else, and no one wants to read complex legalese.
