I have about 20 days to submit my appeal brief after a 30 day extension. I would like someone to review it before I submit it
You'll need to retain an attorney if you want someone to review the brief. Anything in the record on appeal can be cited. If those are not in the record and/or are not preserved, you've got a big problem.
As Mr. Halscott stated, you need to cite to things in the Record On Appeal. It is indexed and you can refer to documents in it by their pages in it. e.g. R22-23 to refer to a document that is at pages 22 and 23 of the record. But it very much appears from your question that you need to get an appellate attorney to help you with this.
There is no substitute for the professional advice of an attorney who knows your case and represents you. My post is not, and may not be relied on as, legal advice and does not create an attorney-client relationship. Best wishes for a just and expeditious resolution.
You should really hire a lawyer, doing an appeal is even further from DIY than litigating in county/circuit court. You can cite anything that is in the record as the appellate court gets the whole record to review.
