Ms. Bassett has represented clients in more than two hundred appeals throughout Florida.  Not every ruling by a trial court judge is appealable, so Ms. Bassett advises clients regarding whether they can appeal an adverse ruling. 


For cases that go to trial, Ms. Bassett sometimes acts as trial counsel, conducting trials with careful consideration of the issues that may be appealable after the entry of a judgment.  Appeals begin in the trial courts, where preservation of the record is the most critical step to preserve issues a party wants reviewed at the appellate level.


Parties can't always anticipate when an opposing party will appeal a ruling.  In these cases, Ms. Bassett defends clients seeking to preserve a trial court's ruling.  Early review of the record and evaluation of the merits can often lead to settlement of an appeal, saving clients considerable time and money.
