Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.

This depends...did the case end? And if so how? Was it from a preliminary ruling from the judge (like a summary judgment)? Or did it go to trial?

as far as the adverse possession , the judge sided in his favor, the only thing my lawyer said, "was if you are going to evict her , can you make it after the holidays" no argument of my living there and treating place as my own or anything. the owner died, she was the president of the board of realtors, her friend sold her daughters house and sold mine to same guy for 20.000 . my lawyer did file a claim for cost of improvements i had put into home, but for a year now it has been postponed , then conveniently my lawyer withdrew. I am to appear tomorrow for that case.

The rule is 30 days..that is, you have 30 days from the judgment to file the notice of appeal.

That starts from the day the notice of entry of a Final Judgment is noted in the Chronological Case Summary.
