Navigating The Appellate Process
When a judgment is rendered, a case is not always over. Litigants can appeal trial court verdicts and judgments to higher courts to correct mistaken, erroneous or arbitrary decisions of juries and trial judges.
Handling the appellate process is a demanding, complicated, and time-sensitive task. Because appeals prescribe different rules, processes, and require skills different than those at trial, it is important to retain an experienced and knowledgeable attorney to protect your rights in appellate courts.
Our attorneys have skillsets that make them highly adept at handling appeals – from the composition of the record of appeal to briefing and oral argument.
In addition to representing our own clients on appeal, our firm has also served as appellate counsel on matters previously tried by other firms.
