A: A Nevada attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for two weeks and time is very much of the essence when it comes to appeals. Unlike statutes of limitations or notices of claims, where deadlines can be in the order of years or months, timelines for appeals, as a GENERAL MATTER (speak with a Nevada attorney for state-specific timelines, or a federal practice attorney if your appeal materializes from a federal court decision), can be in the order of days. Thirty (30) days is not uncommon in many jurisdictions. Further, an attorney will need time to review your case records to determine if appeal is viable, as grounds for appeal are not liberal in most jurisdictions as a general matter. In summary, speak with an appeals attorney (two weeks has already been used up here) immediately to determine if you have the grounds for an appeal and whether an appeal is financially worth your effort and resources as a practical matter. Good luck
