Do not think that just because you did work in front of a New Jersey trial court such as preparing New Jersey briefs, that you will just do the same thing on your New Jersey appeal! New Jersey pro se appeal legal services can bridge the gap between having no attorney and having a high priced law firm to do everything for you at a high cost! A New Jersey pro se party without legal guidance to help them with their New Jersey appeal may be taking great risks! The New Jersey Appeals Court rules are often very different than those for the New Jersey trial court. New Jersey appeal briefs are very difficult to write – just doing what a New Jersey pro se party did before in the New Jersey trial court is not sufficient in a New Jersey appeal. New Jersey appeal briefs and New Jersey appeal appendix must be prepared in a very specific format. Usually preparing a New Jersey appeal brief and New Jersey appeal appendix takes dozens of hours! A New Jersey Appeals Court has the power to reject or refuse to consider New Jersey briefs and New Jersey appendix that are incorrectly prepared or may decide to fine New Jersey pro se parties who fail to follow the New Jersey Appeals Court rules. A New Jersey pro se party will not necessarily get any breaks from the New Jersey Appeals Court simply because the New Jersey pro se party is not a New Jersey appeals lawyer! Your New Jersey appeal brief and New Jersey appeal appendix are very important to your New Jersey appeal – don’t prepare them without the help of an experienced New Jersey appeals lawyer! New Jersey pro se appeal legal services can be an affordable way to deal with your New Jersey appeal.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY APPELLATE COURT CASE MYSELF?
New Jersey appeals are some of the most complex matters heard in New Jersey Courts and the failure to file the New Jersey Court Rules governing New Jersey Appeals could result in your New Jersey Appeal being dismissed or your being fined by the New Jersey Appellate Court. While some people and law firms can and do successfully handle New Jersey Appeals, many other attorneys and non-attorneys make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their cases or that result in the entry of fines against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a New Jersey appeals lawyer to handle part or all of the case. The following are reasons to use an experienced New Jersey appeals lawyer to handle part or all of your case:
• New Jersey Appellate Court rules change.
• New Jersey Appellate Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees.
• New Jersey Appellate Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in court.
• Each New Jersey Appeal has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• It is very common for people to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Appellate papers that result in the complaints or answers to complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Appeals Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Appeals Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the case.
• a court has the power to punish unprepared parties, such as by throwing their case out of court or limiting what they can present at trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at trial.
• Without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Appeals Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• You cannot show up at a New Jersey Appeals Court expecting the judge hearing your case to explain court rules, evidence rules, court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your case. The judge hearing your case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have a New Jersey appeals lawyer, you could lose your New Jersey appeal. Hiring a New Jersey appeals lawyer to handle part or all of your case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your case or to avoid certain mistakes.

DOES THE LAW OFFICE OF PAUL DEPETRIS HAVE EXPERIENCE HANDLING NEW JERSEY APPEALS?
Let an experienced New Jersey appeals lawyer help you with your New Jersey appeal. Paul DePetris has performed the following tasks:
• Prepared New Jersey appellate briefs for appeals from New Jersey municipal court decisions.
• Prepared New Jersey appellate briefs for appeals from New Jersey Superior Court decisions.
• Prepared New Jersey appellate briefs that succeeded in defeating appeals.

Mr. DePetris is also the author of the following publications: New Jersey Consumer Fraud Act & Forms (New Jersey Law Journal Books); Learned Professionals, Licensed Semiprofessionals and the Consumer Fraud Act: The Origins of the Licensed Professionals’ Doctrine (New Jersey Lawyer, Oct. 2008); and Liability For Consumer Fraud In Real Estate Transactions (New Jersey Law Journal, March 18, 2009).

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY APPEALS COURT PERSONNEL OR NEW JERSEY APPEALS COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Special Civil employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a Special Civil judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Special Civil employees are not trained attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey appeals court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY APPEAL FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY APPEALS COURT?
The New Jersey appeal usually provides certain types of Special Civil legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey appeal forms provided by the New Jersey Appeals Court – the Special Civil forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey appeal cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent Special Civil attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey appeal cases. Special Civil forms don’t talk and Special Civil forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey appeal case. Each New Jersey appeal case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey Special Civil trial attorney, it is best to have the Special Civil attorney prepare your New Jersey pro se appeal paperwork for you.
