An appeal must be filed within forty-two days from the date the trial court entered the final judgment that resolved all pending matters that were before it. If a litigant fails to file a timely appeal, then the right to appeal is lost. Therefore, it is imperative to seek a review of a Final Judgment and to discuss your appellate options as soon as a Final Order has been entered if you are dissatisfied with the outcome of your case.
