Do I need an attorney for an appeal in Florida?

Technically a person could represent themselves on an appeal in Florida. However, it’s probably not a good idea. Legal writing is something that lawyers begin to learn in law school and develop and perfect over years of practice. There’s also a number of rules of appellate procedure that apply to appeals in Florida that attorneys are well versed in.

Also, an attorney who’s been practicing for a number of years will be in a much better position to spot the potential issues for appeal, which may lead to success on appeal.
