Our Practices

Appeals

Before an appeal goes forward, our Appellate Practice Group carefully studies the record in the lower court and analyzes the lower court decision. Effective appellate advocacy requires a candid assessment of the strengths and weakness of the case and the costs associated with an appeal, to determine what is ultimately in the best interests of the client. Our Appellate Practice Group Attorneys conduct an analysis of lower court orders to assess the viability of an appeal, prepare an appellate budget for the case, and prepare an anticipated timeline for the resolution of the appeal.

Our Attorneys represent clients before federal courts of appeals and state appellate and supreme courts. We are experienced in all phases of the appellate process, including:

  • Formulating appellate strategies

  • Identifying and researching critical issues

  • Drafting and editing briefs and petitions for extraordinary writs

  • Presenting oral arguments

  • Preparing amicus curiae briefs

  • Preparing post-appeal motions

  • Filing post-trial motions for new trial, remittitur, and judgment as a matter of law

  • Negotiating settlements (if appropriate)

Our Attorneys have the analytical skill, extensive legal knowledge, experience, and persuasive writing ability to provide our clients with strategic, effective appellate counsel.
