He’ll explain complicated legal concepts in a way that is easy to understand.

Understanding the Appeal Process

An appellate case is very different from a criminal trial. An appeal is very research- and writing-intensive, which is where Nathan Swanson excels. He’ll go over court transcripts, filings, motions and discovery with a fine-tooth comb until he sees exactly what went wrong at trial.

After analyzing the data and discussing the details with you or your loved one, he’ll determine the grounds for appeal and then draft and file the brief. After the opposing party files its brief, Nathan Swanson will file a reply brief, challenging their arguments. Finally, the case will go to a panel of the higher courts for oral arguments—an area he loves and is very good at. His academic background and decade of experience make Nathan Swanson a highly sought-after appellate attorney.

In a criminal appeal, it is often the family of a loved one who first reaches out because their loved one is incarcerated. After speaking with the family, Nathan Swanson will visit the incarcerated person to better understand their case. This step in the process often brings a sense of hope to the incarcerated person and their loved ones. After all, an appeal is your first, and often only, chance to overturn an erroneous decision.
