To ensure that our clients achieve the best results at all stages of litigation, our appellate attorneys do not limit their practice to the appellate courts. In addition to full appellate court representation, our appellate attorneys routinely handle legal issues at the trial court level and are highly skilled at summary judgment practice, motions to dismiss, challenges to expert witness testimony, motions to transfer venue, removal and remand from federal court, discovery disputes and jury charge preparation.
To achieve success, we believe that appellate lawyers must have more than a firm grasp of the substantive law and procedural rules. They must possess the analytical and writing skills necessary to persuade courts to accept their clients’ positions. Our experienced attorneys have this knowledge and skill and will custom tailor our involvement to match the precise needs of clients and referring attorneys.
The range of our services includes preparing and responding to post-verdict motions, advice regarding the chances of success on appeal, analyzing and researching appellate issues, authoring appellate briefs, and presenting oral argument. When our firm is trial counsel or our appellate attorneys have been retained to assist other trial counsel, our services include motions for summary judgment, challenges to expert witness testimony, discovery disputes, other motion practice and preparing and objecting to the trial court’s jury charge.
