The role of the Nevada Supreme Court

Each state has its own court system that operates according to state laws as well as federal, and within certain limits, these may be unique. Nevada is no different in imposing its own rules and regulations, particularly when it comes to appeals. In fact, according to the Las Vegas Sun, the Nevada Court of Appeals uses a model similar to only three other states.

Working through the appeal process

For many people, disputes and legal issues in the courtroom can generate anxiety. Unfortunately, people do not always secure an outcome in their favor, some of whom may believe that a decision was unjust. If you are going through this on a personal level, the Aldrich Law Firm knows how pivotal it is for you to understand your rights and the most sensible direction forward. In Las Vegas, and in cities across the entire state of Nevada, people have been able to reverse unfair and unfavorable court decisions by working through the appeal process properly.

Appellate court decisions and what they mean

If you and another party have a dispute over a business contract, you may have felt sure that the judge in the district court would see the evidence and rule in your favor. However, even if he or she finds that the other party did not breach the contract, you may be able to file an appeal. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., our team regularly assists clients through the appellate court system.

What is discovery?

The word “justice” may call to mind the concepts of fairness and lawfulness, and when you file a lawsuit in Nevada, you should expect the court to uphold them. The American Bar Association explains that one of the processes in civil litigation, discovery, includes rules for making sure you and the other party each have the opportunity to address every issue in the case so that the outcome is fair.

Appealing an eviction order

Being evicted from your home in Nevada can be a traumatic experience, but even after you have unsuccessfully filed a motion to cancel the eviction order, you may have options. There are many post-trial strategies that may result in a reversed outcome and allow you to stay in the house. Our team at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., has offered legal advice and represented many people who are seeking resolution for landlord-tenant issues.

When judges make mistakes

Taking someone to court over an injury you sustained on his or her Las Vegas property could result in compensation for the costs of your medical care, pain and suffering, and other damages. However, there is no guarantee that the judge will see things your way. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we have helped many people successfully appeal premises liability decisions after an incorrect judgment.

The path of a civil case through the Nevada court system

A person may decide to file a civil complaint in a Nevada court for a number of reasons. For example, compensation may be available for someone who suffers a physical injury or loss because of another’s negligence, a breached contract, defamation of character or other such matter. The Legal Aid Center of Southern Nevada explains that this claim is typically seeking damages, protection of rights or an injunction. The defendant can then file an answer or another type of response to the plaintiff’s claims.

Arbitration vs. litigation: Elements to consider

When a business dispute arises between your Las Vegas company and another party, you may believe you have no choice but to involve the legal system. However, seeking assistance to resolve the issue does not necessarily mean heading to court. We at the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., often provide advice to business owners who are unsure of the best means of resolving commercial disputes.

You may receive compensation for attorney’s fees in your appeal

Losing a case can be disheartening, but under many circumstances, a Nevada civil appeal may be an option. However, after reviewing the requirements for filing one, attempting to do so on your own may seem overwhelming. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., our team often assists those who are not comfortable navigating the appellate court system themselves.

What goes into an appellate brief

After a Nevada judge’s ruling, a person who is not satisfied with the decision may be able to make an appeal. According to the United States Courts, the issues usually stem from the belief that the court did not apply the law correctly, made the ruling based on the wrong law or conducted the trial in an unfair way. The petitioner who is filing for an appeal must provide the appellate court with a brief that outlines what his or her case is. In spite of the name, a brief is often a long and complex legal document.
