What is the Appellate Division Like
April 14, 2018
As an attorney, working at the Appellate Division level on New York divorce and custody cases is a wonderful experience. This work allows attorneys to delve into the law in a heightened manner so that the very best case law is used to bolster your arguments for error performed at the trial court level.
It is also a unique opportunity to have four seasoned judges listen to your arguments for ten to fifteen minutes, allowing the Justices the opportunity to ask questions about your case and pay attention to the case in order to ascertain if the lower court made a mistake in law or findings of fact.
As an attorney in New York who has appeared before the Appellate Division Second Department on at least three occasions I can honestly say that the attorneys and clients, all., were treated with the utmost respect.
Sometimes, trial level courts just do not have the time to try each and every case properly. The courts make mistakes, too. And that is where the appellate divisions come in. This unique judicial body is often the last place a litigant has to be heard on their case because very few cases can be appealed to the next level which is the Court of Appeals.
