Appellate Practice

Our appellate work is a natural extension of our litigation in all areas of practice.  Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of the rules and procedures of appellate courts.  We recognize the opportunity for further discussion of settlement while matters are pending on appeal, but also know the appellate process is a necessary component of our legal system where errors of the lower courts can be corrected, and where favorable decisions can be affirmed.  The appellate strategy is determined on a case-by-case basis and after consultation with the client.  We pride ourselves on writing clear, concise and persuasive appellate briefs.  We argue the facts, law and public policy at oral argument in such a way as to make clear to the appellate court the wisdom of ruling in favor of our clients.
