The first thing to consider is whether you have an appealable order. In Florida, that question doesn’t always have a clear answer. In federal, it’s generally clearer. A qualified appellate attorney can help you answer that question. Why? Because, in simplest terms, whether you have an order that’s final or nonfinal depends and it can affect whether you can even appeal and the kind of appeal. Is it an appeal of a final order under rule of appellate procedure 9.110? Is it an appeal of a nonfinal order under rule of appellate procedure 9.130? Is it an original writ proceeding, such as a writ of certiorari? The kind of order you have and its finality matter. The second thing to study in deciding whether to appeal is the overall merits of the appeal itself. Either way, it’s very helpful to have a qualified appellate attorney review the orders as soon as possible that you either want to appeal or defend in an appeal
