Bryce Runkle, Attorney at Law

Civil Appeals

My practice is dedicated to providing quality representation in civil appellate matters.   An appeal is basically a review of the trial to determine whether any errors occurred.   Normally, the only issues the appellate court will consider are those concerning the legal rulings of the trial court.  In other words, the appellate court will review any rulings made by the trial judge to determine they were correct.  New evidence cannot be admitted during the appeal.  The court is limited to the written record of the trial and errors which are preserved for appellate review.   Normally an objection during trial is required to preserve an issue for appellate review.  An appellate court's review of fact issues presented at trial is extremely limited.  Except in extreme cases, the appellate court will not review the jury's verdict to determine whether the court thinks the verdict is correct.
