2. What are “probabilities of success”?

Appellate lawyers cannot guarantee success. Avoid any lawyer that makes guarantees of success. Experienced appellate lawyers, however, can, after reading the record and studying the most current law on the issues, estimate your chances, or “probabilities of success," in prosecuting or defending an appeal.  "Probabilities of success" vary by court and by issue, and our experienced appellate lawyers can give you estimates of your candid "probabilities" of success after evaluating your appeal.

To see whether issues were correctly preserved for appellate review and, therefore, whether you have a potential issue worth appealing, consult with an appellate lawyer to help you ascertain that and to estimate the chances of success on appeal.  

We also provide case analysis of your case for a minimal fee, which we will credit to your appeal retainer, if our review and research reflect that we can help you in prosecuting or defending your appeal. If issues that you want to raise or defend on appeal were the wrong issues or were not preserved for appellate review, we can honestly give our opinion, suggest a second opinion, and potentially save you thousands of dollars you might otherwise spend on an appeal with no or weak appealable issues.
