If you file a lawsuit and lose the case, you can appeal the decision to the next highest court, which is called the appellate court.

Appellate attorneys specialize in appeals because they understand the specific and detailed rules that must be followed. It is possible to lose an appeal on technicalities, even when the law is on your side.
