Appellate Practice

 

Mistakes before, during, and after trial occur. If you have been to trial and are unahppy with the outcome of your case, you may have grounds for appeal to a higher court for a trial de novo or review of the accuracy of your initial trial. Hite Law is prepared to listen to your concerns, reivew the trial record, and appeal your case where necessary.

 

**Important Note: Both Criminal and Civil Appeals in North Carolina are regulated by specific rules that govern timing issues if you choose to appeal your case from District or Superior Court. This means you only have a certain amount of time before you are unable to appeal your case after final judgemnt, thus time is essential. DO NOT DELAY**
