Nevada Supreme Court

Trial Court and Appellate Courts are very Different

Generally, the focus in the trial court is to discover the facts and apply the law to the facts. For example, what was a term of a contract and, if not fulfilled, was there a breach? A good litigator must be able to determine the facts, find the correct law, tell a convincing story, and persuade the Court.

In an appellate courts, there is usually no battle over facts. Rather, the focus of the appellate court is to insure that 1) both sides got a fair trial/hearing and 2) the judge correctly applied the right law to the case. A good appellate lawyer will use logic and reasoning to persuade the Court almost entirely in written pleadings.
