Hi, Eric, thanks for asking for me and I'm sorry I was not alerted by anyone that you were looking for my assistance. That is unusual. I never even saw this last night. Perhaps in the future, my name in the header as well as clicking that link/button that holds it may help, because I think then I get an email that you are looking for me. I am glad, however, that you were addressed by one of my colleagues.
That being said - I suggest you consider using a criminal appeals notice form - not a civil form, since you are not in the civil court system.
While I have been unable to locate a form specific to appeals from the Municipal Court of the City of Austin, here are a couple you can tailor by putting in the proper names, titles
this one is a Notice of Appeal by the STATE, and it is from the next level up to the even higher level. As you can see, it is "notice" - it is NOT your appeal argument in full at all. That will be in your brief, later.link
and this one is by the Defendant. See how short and sweet it is.
And here is one sample
of a form for ordering the Record - I'd present it to the clerk in person possibly (once you format to your case), to ensure it covers any record preparation and transcript requirements that may exist in your case, since this is not specific to your municipality.
I am leaving for the night - we are expecting a foot to 2 feet of snow, lol, so I have some work to do! Have a great night.
