Direct Appeal

Understanding Direct Appeal

A direct appeal is a formal pleading seeking to have a 3-judge panel review the trial court’s decision. During an appeal, the appellate court will review whether an error occurred in the trial court that resulted in a denial of due process or an error that resulted in anything less than a fair trial.

A notice of appeal is the formal method of starting the appeals process in Illinois. After filing a notice of appeal, the appellate record must be prepared, which includes the entire trial court file, the trial transcripts, exhibits entered into evidence, and anything else that is relevant to the appeal. Your appellate attorney will use these items to create an appellate brief on your behalf.
