The Court does not always get it right. When the court errs in applying the law or facts to a case, it is important to have attorneys who can appeal the court’s decision. In New Jersey State Court, there are two types of appeals: interlocutory appeals and appeals from final judgments or decisions.
Interlocutory appeals involve challenging decisions that do not end a case but address a matter in an ongoing dispute. Interlocutory appeals must be filed within 20 days of the date of service of the court’s decision unless a motion for reconsideration is filed.
Appeals of final judgments involve decisions that end a case or take place after a trial is completed and a decision is made by either a judge or jury. If appealing a final judgment, you have 45 days from the date of service of the final decision or order to file an appeal.
If you believe that the court has erred and appeal is warranted, or if you are defending an appeal that has been filed, you need counsel who understands appellate practice. Our firm is fortunate to have the experience and insight of Harry G. Carroll, J.A.D. (Ret.). A former member of the Appellate Division, Judge Carroll is available to counsel clients on strategy in appeals and to provide guidance to the appellate practitioners at the firm.
