Criminal & Civil Appeals

Appellate advocacy is very different than trial advocacy.  Whereas trials revolve around presenting evidence and establishing facts, appeals focus on the correct interpretation and application of fine points of law.

Our Lawyers’ Collaborative Approach Benefits Clients seeking to Appeal a Criminal or Civil Decision.

As much of the appeals process is focused on written material, a successful appeal requires not only skilled oral advocacy, but also comprehensive legal research and excellent written advocacy. 

At Spiteri & Ursulak LLP we have skilled litigators who routinely appear in court as well as lawyers who dedicate the majority of their practice to performing in-depth legal research and drafting the written materials necessary to successfully appeal decisions made against our clients.  Thus, our clients get the best of both worlds: skilled oral advocacy backed up by solid legal research and convincing written arguments.

Our lawyers have extensive experience conducting appeals at all levels of court, including the Ontario Court of Appeal and the Supreme Court of Canada, and we have a proven track record of success.

Our Experienced Team Defends against Civil Appeals.

Our team’s extensive experience with the appeals process makes us ideally placed to represent our clients in civil appeals.  The unique team approach the lawyers at Spiteri & Ursulak LLP bring to all of their files means that you will not be receiving the help of just one lawyer, but rather the assistance of a full legal team.  The collaborative approach we take to files ensure that our clients receive skillful representation in court that is supported by solid legal research and excellent written materials.
