The attorneys in Kelley Kronenberg’s Appellate Division have handled hundreds of appeals, writ proceedings, and motions before the six Florida District Courts of Appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Across these venues, our Team represents appellants, appellees, and other interested parties in:

  • Appeals of Final Orders,
  • Interlocutory Appeals,
  • Motions for Rehearing and Rehearing en banc,
  • Preparation and Presentation of Amicus Curiae Briefs,
  • Proceedings to Invoke or Oppose Discretionary Jurisdiction,
  • Writs of Certiorari,
  • Writs of Mandamus, and
  • Writs of Prohibition.

The Kelley Kronenberg Appellate Division is one of the firm’s greatest resources. Our Appellate Team is often called on to assist our trial attorneys with record preservation, providing a keen advantage should an appeal ensue. If an appeal is later initiated, our appellate attorneys begin with familiarity of the case, eliminating duplicate efforts, thereby reducing our clients’ appellate costs. The Appellate Division also handles appeals brought to Kelley Kronenberg after another firm litigated the case in lower court proceedings.

Effective appellate advocacy requires a candid assessment of the strengths and weaknesses of the case and the costs associated with an appeal to determine what course serves the best interests of our clients. Our Appellate Division attorneys use their knowledge and expertise to conduct analyses of lower court orders, formulating sound opinions regarding the viability and potential success of an appeal. We counsel our clients with objectivity, enabling our clients to elect the course of action that meets their needs and with which they are most comfortable.

Our attorneys understand the importance of persuasive writing, detailed research, and careful analysis. Our Appellate Team knows how to examine a case, identify and research the issues supporting reversal or affirmance, and pinpoint the best arguments to represent our clients’ positions. We use our well-honed skills and experience to compose clear, concise, and persuasive legal briefs, and to present well-reasoned and compelling oral arguments on behalf of our clients.

Throughout the appellate process, our attorneys assess and advise when settlement in lieu of appeal is the advisable course of action. When appropriate, our Appellate Team combines exemplary negotiating skills with creative strategizing to bring about the most cost-effective and advantageous settlements.
