For appeals from a Justice Court, you don't have to write a full-fledged appellate brief. You just have to file notice of appeal within 10 days of the judgment being rendered. The Justice Court clerk's office should actually have a form that you can fill out. If not, you can use this as guidance...just change the court name and fill in the blanks and then file it in the clerk's office.
Hope this helps.
