The time for requesting a jury trial is before the Judge issues a final ruling. If the Judge has made a final ruling, then you would need to appeal. Appeals have a definite deadline, so if you are going to appeal, you must contact a lawyer immediately to make sure you preserve your right to appeal and make a timely appeal.

Appellate law is a specialized field, so you will want an attorney who has handled appeals before.
