WHY FILE A NEW JERSEY APPEAL AND WHY ANSWER A NEW JERSEY APPEAL OR DEFEND A NEW JERSEY APPEAL?
When deciding whether to take a New Jersey appeal of a New Jersey New Jersey trial court judgment, New Jersey New Jersey trial court decision, New Jersey New Jersey trial court order or New Jersey administrative law decision or to defend against a New Jersey appeal of a New Jersey trial, there are many important considerations.

WHY FILE A NEW JERESEY APPEAL?
When deciding whether to take a New Jersey appeal of a New Jersey New Jersey trial court judgment, New Jersey New Jersey trial court decision, New Jersey New Jersey trial court order or New Jersey administrative law decision or to defend against a New Jersey appeal of a New Jersey trial, consider the following:
• Many New Jersey trial judges and New Jersey administrative law judges are overturned on appeal.
• New Jersey New Jersey trial courts and New Jersey administrative judges often commit reversible error when interpreting New Jersey statutes, New Jersey administrative regulations, New Jersey common law and New Jersey court rules.
• New Jersey New Jersey trial courts and New Jersey administrative judges often commit reversible error by failing to properly apply the facts of a dispute to the law that applies to the New Jersey case.
• The procedural history and/or substantive legal issues of many cases provide multiple grounds for appeal.
• A pending New Jersey appeal may bring your New Jersey plaintiff opponent or New Jersey defendant opponent to the table to negotiate a settlement of the New Jersey case before the New Jersey appeal is heard. For example, the Appellate Division has a settlement panel program that may resolve your dispute prior to the adjudication of your New Jersey appeal.
• Allowing a New Jersey trial court, appellate court or administrative judge’s bad legal decision to stand could affect future cases, causing you difficulty on other New Jersey cases you handle in the future.
• If you performed many hours of work on the New Jersey case and lost before a New Jersey New Jersey trial court or before a New Jersey administrative judge, you may owe it to yourself to try to reverse an erroneous decision.
• If you win on a New Jersey appeal, you may gain new respect from New Jersey opponents or peers who you may see again in New Jersey court.
• If you prevail on a New Jersey appeal and your New Jersey appeals case becomes published, you could establish a reputation on the subject of the New Jersey appeal superior to that held by many other attorneys in your area of practice. Few things strengthen a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant’s reputation like a published opinion in which they represented the prevailing party.
• If you prevail on a New Jersey appeal, you may be forever grateful and you may thereby vindicate yourself.
• Unless you take an appeal of a New Jersey decision that you believe is incorrect, you shall never know if you could have turned the tables on your New Jersey appeals case.

WHY ANSWER A NEW JERSEY APPEAL OR DEFEND A NEW JERESEY APPEAL?
When deciding whether you need help to defend the New Jersey appeal of a New Jersey New Jersey trial court decision or New Jersey administrative law decision in which you represented or were the prevailing party, consider the following:

• Many New Jersey trial judges and New Jersey administrative law judges are overturned on appeal.
• Even if you won at the trial level, New Jersey New Jersey trial courts and New Jersey administrative judges often commit reversible error when interpreting New Jersey statutes, New Jersey administrative regulations, New Jersey common law and New Jersey court rules.
• New Jersey New Jersey trial courts and New Jersey administrative judges often commit reversible error by failing to properly apply the facts of a dispute to the law that applies to the New Jersey case.
• The procedural history and/or substantive legal issues of many cases provide multiple grounds for appeal.
• If you lose the New Jersey appeal, the resulting bad legal decision could affect future cases, causing you difficulty on other New Jersey cases you handle in the future.
• If you performed many hours of work on the New Jersey case and won at the trial lever, you can’t afford to make a serious effort t to preserve your victory.
• If you win on a New Jersey appeal, you may gain new respect from New Jersey opponents or peers who you may see again in New Jersey court.
• If you prevail on a New Jersey appeal and your New Jersey appeals case becomes published, you could establish a reputation on the subject of the New Jersey appeal superior to that held by many other attorneys in your area of practice. Few things strengthen a New Jersey plaintiff or New Jersey defendant’s reputation like a published opinion in which they represented the prevailing party.
• If you prevail on a New Jersey appeal, you may be forever grateful. “What ifs” shall likely be answered by the New Jersey appeal

The defense of a New Jersey appeal often requires more than merely responding to your New Jersey opponent’s New Jersey appeal brief. For example, what if your New Jersey opponent distorts the facts of the New Jersey case in his or her New Jersey appeal brief or fails to include key New Jersey appeal documents in the appendix or fails to order a crucial New Jersey trial court or administrative hearing transcript? Unless you deal with such issues, the defense of the New Jersey appeal may be seriously compromised. The skills necessary to try a case or to argue a New Jersey motion are not the same as those necessary to skillfully handle an appeal. When facing a New Jersey appeal, thinking on one’s feet often gives way to careful legal analysis, research and writing. Hire a New Jersey appellate attorney to assist you in preparing your New Jersey appeal opposition papers or New Jersey appeal answer papers.

NEED HELP WITH YOUR NEW JERSEY CASE?

Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case. Not all New Jersey cases require you to pay expensive legal fees to get legal help.

WHY SHOULD NEW JERSEY PRO SE PLAINTIFFS AND NEW JERSEY PRO SE DEFENDANTS SEEK HELP FROM A NEW JERSEY LAWYER?
Handling your New Jersey case wrong from the beginning may only cost you more money and time in the end!! Do it right the first time by seeking legal advice from a competent New Jersey lawyer!
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants make the mistake of not consulting a New Jersey lawyer before filing New Jersey Court papers only to later learn that the New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants made serious mistakes that could cause them to lose their New Jersey case. Let the Law Office of Paul DePetris help you with your New Jersey case.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT PERSONNEL FOR LEGAL ADVICE?
New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees. Most New Jersey Court employees are not trained New Jersey attorneys and therefore, they may not know what advice to give you. Working at the New Jersey Court as a non-judge is not the same as practicing law.

CAN I RELY ON NEW JERSEY COURT FORMS PROVIDED BY THE NEW JERSEY COURT?
The New Jersey Court usually provides certain types of New Jersey Court legal forms to the public and those forms are often very helpful. However, beware relying on New Jersey Court forms provided by the New Jersey Court – the New Jersey Court forms are often deceptively simple, while New Jersey cases often are much more complex than they first appear to be. There is simply no substitute for a competent New Jersey attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey who has experience handling New Jersey cases. New Jersey Court forms don’t talk and New Jersey Court forms and their directions rarely, if ever, cover every possible situation, set of facts or legal issue that may arise in a New Jersey case. Each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges. If you can afford a competent New Jersey attorney, it is best to have the New Jersey attorney prepare your New Jersey Court paperwork for you.

CAN I HANDLE A NEW JERSEY CASE MYSELF?
Many New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants can and do successfully handle New Jersey cases, from filing the first paperwork to the collection of a New Jersey Court judgment. However, many other New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants also make mistakes that lead to the dismissal of their New Jersey cases or that result in the entry of a New Jersey Court money judgment against them. The greater the money at stake, the greater the reason to consider using the services of a competent attorney licensed to practice law in New Jersey to handle part or all of the New Jersey case. The following are reasons to use an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case:
• New Jersey Court fees often change
• New Jersey Court rules often change
• New Jersey Court employees cannot give you “free” legal advice and a New Jersey Court judge may refuse to let you claim that you were right in taking an action (or in deciding not to take action) because you relied on advice from such employees
• New Jersey Court forms available on websites may not cover every situation you may face in Court
• each New Jersey case has its own particular legal issues and therefore, its own challenges
• it is very common for New Jersey pro se plaintiffs and New Jersey pro se defendants to file inadequate or incorrect New Jersey Court complaints that result in the New Jersey Court complaints or answers to New Jersey Court complaints being rejected by the New Jersey Court or being dismissed by the New Jersey Court after filing and before or after trial because of procedural deficiencies.
• it is not uncommon for judges to get very frustrated by an unrepresented party’s lack of preparation or ignorance of the facts or law of the New Jersey case.
• a Court has the power to punish unprepared New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants, such as by throwing their New Jersey case out of Court or limiting what they can present at the New Jersey Court trial.
• New Jersey has many published cases, laws, regulations, Court rules and rules of evidence that can be very tricky to understand and that can be used to prevent you from doing much of what you want to do at the New Jersey Court trial.
• it is very common for Courts to refuse to allow a party to use or refer to documents or items at the New Jersey Court trial that the person themselves never prepared. Often New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants stumble into New Jersey Court with a video, photograph, bill or affidavit or other form of written statement, thinking they are going to use it as proof that they lost money or that they are not responsible for someone else’s damages, only to have a New Jersey Court judge tell the New Jersey plaintiffs and New Jersey defendants that it is not going to even consider such items or documents.
• without the proper preparation, items and documents may never be considered by the New Jersey Court. Also, if there are any legal issues to be dealt with at the New Jersey Court trial, you must be prepared to argue them, which may require you to refer to Court rules, evidence rules, laws, regulations or published cases.
• you cannot show up at the New Jersey Court expecting the judge hearing your New Jersey case to explain Court rules, evidence rules, Court procedure or the details of the law that applies to your New Jersey case. The judge hearing your New Jersey case is not permitted to give you legal advice.

It is important to remember that even if you have an attorney, you could lose your New Jersey case. Hiring an attorney to handle part or all of your New Jersey case does not guarantee your success. However, it may provide what is needed to win your New Jersey case or to avoid certain mistakes.
