Fresh Set of Eyes
If you were counsel at trial, you may not be able to see clearly which issues must be put to rest and which issues may lead to success on appeal. I am very familiar with the standards of review and how they are applied, and I can help you sort the wheat from the chaff.
You can save your client a lot of wasted money by determining the chance of success on appeal at an early stage.

Outside Opinion for Your Client
I only work with other lawyers, and therefore have no ulterior agenda when it comes to your client. I can be retained to provide an opinion to your client on the chance of success on appeal.
In a recent CPD on Appellate Practice, several presenters noted that clients are often emotional following a loss at trial, and may be inclined to allege bias or other unfairness grounds that will only hinder success on appeal. It may be easier for an outside lawyer, who did not go through the trial with the client, to convince the client to let go of this unhelpful approach to focus on the true appealable issues.
