Appellate advocacy is very different from work in the
trenches of provincial courts. Appeals are not simply another chance to
bring the same arguments used at trial.
Appeals courts have limited powers and are scrupulous about staying
within those powers. The proceedings are
sombre, intellectual, and precise.
We have recent experience in over a dozen appeals before provincial courts of appeal. We have
obtained orders for new hearings in a number of cases, including cases involving
serious violence, homicide, and indeterminate incarceration. We have also defeated appeals brought by the government.
