Appellate Practice

Without a successful appellate practice backing it up, success at trial can be of little value.

Appellate law involves handling cases after a trial or a proceeding before a court or agency. The focus changes from convincing the fact finder to convincing the appellate court that the position before the lower tribunal is legally sufficient. Appellate attorneys understand the procedural intricacies of practice in courts of appeal, working closely with a team of attorneys blending trial and appellate experience.

Services offered include:

  • Legal analysis, strategy and issue identification
  • Preparing trial briefs
  • Oral arguments
  • State and federal appellate courts
  • Temporary injunctions, certification matters and other complex evidentiary hearings
  • Preparing the court’s charge and attending the charge conference at trial
  • Preparing or responding to post-trial motions
