You might be under the impression that the end of a trial is the end of a case, however, this is not always true. When the verdict is announced in court, one of the parties, or even both might want to make an appeal. Both partial and full appeals can be made. People who have been convicted of a crime might want to initiate a re-trial as a result of wrongful decisions made by the jury or the lower court.
An appeal can be described as the process of taking the trial to a higher authority. The process involves escalating the case to a higher court for advanced review. An appellate attorney is one who guides clients in putting forward a strong case and arguments during the appeal process.

During an appeal, the court will check and find out if and how a mistake was made during the original hearing. The appeals court does not initiate any inquiry or collection of evidence from its end. The appeals court makes use of the records to look into the matter and ascertain the discrepancies and check for the mistakes made by the lower court. The records are reviewed by the higher authorities in the form of transcripts.
