Our Firm’s Appellate practice is founded on the central principle of making complex legal arguments simple and straightforward, so that a skeptical and busy higher court can quickly get to the heart of alleged errors our clients believe harmed them at the trial level. We provide thorough legal research from a nationwide database and carefully review the record to determine the best way to advance our client’s appellate issues.
Our attorneys have appeared and argued our clients’ causes in numerous instances in appellate courts at federal and state levels. We have successfully obtained relief for clients who we originally represented at the trial level, and also for those who decided to hire us in order to bring a fresh perspective to a case they first presented with other counsel.
We recognize that an Appellate lawyer must know the standards for appeal and get an Appellate Court’s attention quickly enough to capture its interest in sometimes difficult and complex arguments of fact and law. We understand that often our clients were victorious below and need to convince the Appellate Court that trial decisions were rationally made in the face of our adversary’s arguments to the contrary. Simultaneously, we recognize what it takes to convince an Appellate Court that our clients may have been treated improperly by decisions that can often be made under compressed judicial time constraints.
We have strong persuasive writing and oral argument skills and can present both sides of any argument. We approach any appeal in which we are involved with an informed perspective, drawn from our strong knowledge of substantive and procedural law.
