An Appeal is a further proceeding in court. In an appeal, the appellant (usually the person who lost at trial) argues that a mistake has been made in the trial court and asks that the appeals court “overturn” the decision of the trial court its a request to have a higher court review the decision of a lower court to potentially have that decision changed. This is sometimes done to challenge a ruling or conviction entirely. In other cases, it challenges the sentence. This means that just because an error was made, it does not necessarily mean you are likely to have your conviction or the lower court’s decision overturned.
