If you arrange a consult to discuss an appeal, think about what you stand to gain and what you stand to pay. Ask about the costs of the appeal and prospects for its success. Appeals can be expensive, and grounds for appeals (as a general matter nationwide) are generally narrow and limited. Good luck
