Appellate

After the trial

Congratulations, you won. Or, maybe not. Regardless, your case is now going before an appellate court. Whether it is a federal or state court, a case on appeal requires attorneys with a deep understanding of the appellate process. Appeals require careful legal research and exceptional writing and oral argument skills.

Appearing before a federal or state appeals panel is one of the most challenging aspects of the law. Appellate practice requires different skills than those of trial practice.

Our appellate attorneys have the skills necessary to research complex legal issues, understand appropriate legal precedent, develop a well-crafted legal brief, and present a persuasive oral argument.

As one federal judge wrote in an essay about appellate attorneys, “The bottom line is that not only is your reputation important to you as a person, it is one of the tools you can use to advance your client’s goals as an advocate.”
