To answer a New Jersey appeal a person must often do more than merely respond to an adversary’s brief. For example, what if your adversary distorts the facts of the case in his or her brief, fails to include key documents in the appendix or fails to order a crucial trial court or administrative hearing transcript? Unless you deal with such issues, the defense of the appeal may be seriously compromised. The skills necessary to try a case or to argue a motion are not the same as those necessary to skillfully handle an appeal. When facing a New Jersey appeal, thinking on one’s feet often gives way to careful legal analysis, research and writing.
