While most people associate an appeal with a criminal case, you can actually appeal a civil judgment as well. The process is very similar to a criminal appeal, except instead of challenging a guilty verdict, you are challenging the monetary award against you. It doesn’t matter if the amount is $10 or $10 million, you are entitled to appeal any monetary judgment made against you.
Civil appeals can often become extremely complex, and sometimes come down to legal issues that have never yet been addressed by the courts. It can be very difficult to navigate the civil appeal process on your own, especially if you’re going up against a law firm or someone else with civil law experience.
If you’ve had a monetary judgment or award found against you, contact Nevada Defense Group today for a free consultation to discuss your rights. Remember, act quickly, because appeals have very strict time requirements, and you can lose your right to appeal forever even if you are only one day late!
