Appellate

An appeal in the legal system is where one resorts to a superior (appellate) court to review the decision of an inferior (trial) court. In Indiana, there is an intermediate appellate court, the Court of Appeals, and a Supreme Court. Thompson Law Office represents clients in both civil and criminal appeals before the Indiana Court of Appeals and the Indiana Supreme Court.

Tom Thompson has represented clients on appeals from trial courts in seven counties (Fayette, Franklin, Rush, Tippecanoe, Wayne, Vermillion, and Union). He has successfully represented clients on appeals involving issues such as civil judgments (See Ritz v. Area Planning Commission of Franklin Co., 698 N.E.2d 386 (Ind. Ct. App. 1998) (where the Court of Appeals reversed the trial court's judgment against the appellant for $147,500 and remanded the case to the trial court with instructions to reduce the judgment to $2,500)); criminal felonies (See Davis v. State, 749 N.E.2d 552 (Ind. Ct. App. 2001)(where new law was made regarding admission of physical evidence regarding Indiana's Rape Shield Statute)); and custody (See In Re The Custody of A.N.W., 798 N.E.2d 556 (Ind. Ct. App. 2003) (involving a jurisdictional issue under the Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction Act)).
