Appeals from Housing Court NYC

Posted by Aimee on March 16, 1999 at 17:50:11:

I need to decide whether or not to appeal the decision. I was pro se. There are errors in law and errors in fact according to the pro se attorney. (I'm reluctant to go into details: the court was buzzing re this message board re Richard/Dangerfield). I will be contacting lawyers, all strangers to me, this week and was hoping some of you could give me a ballpark estimate about the costs and time involved to compare with what thay say.

For now: how much to expect just to file the appeal?: court cost, transcript cost: 10 hours, attorney to prepare the papers, (alternate) attorney to coach and review the papers.

Just as important: I want to deposit the rent/judgement into the court of appeals and stay the possesion: is this the normal thing?

Thank you for your time.

ps: any other suggestions welcomed!
