Appellate courts review the decisions of lower courts to determine if the law has been correctly applied. Blethen Berens has a long history of successfully prosecuting and defending appeals before state and federal appellate courts.

Local appellate courts include the Minnesota Court of Appeals, the Minnesota Supreme Court, and the federal Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals.

Experienced appellate lawyers work to persuade three or more appellate judges that your view of the law is correct, even if a trial court judge ruled against you. To this end, the lawyers in our appellate law team are highly skilled in identifying key legal issues and analyzing the likelihood of a favorable result on appeal.
