Practice/Industry Group Overview
Whether our client wants to reverse an adverse judgment or protect a favorable one from reversal, the attorneys at Goldberg Segalla can use their unique skills to help reach the desired outcome. We have successfully resolved appeals in matters that have been with the firm from their inception, as well as those referred to us at the appellate stage.
At Goldberg Segalla, our comprehensive appellate practice is fully integrated with our litigation and insurance coverage practices, which protect the rights of our clients from the beginning. Our attorneys not only excel at writing briefs and oral advocacy but also are intimately familiar with the unique motion practice and bond or undertaking issues frequently involved with appeals.
Successful in New York State, the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and beyond
Recognizing the unique demands of appellate advocacy, our firm has assembled a group of attorneys with vast appellate experience (in addition to their experience in a wide range of practice areas). Some of the group’s attorneys have clerked at Connecticut’s and New York State’s highest courts, New York’s and New Jersey’s appellate division, and the United States Circuit Court of Appeals. Our group is well versed in the procedural requirements of the New York Court of Appeals, and has used these skills to bring important issues to New York’s highest court – where we have successfully argued our clients’ positions. Of course, the appellate attorneys at Goldberg Segalla have also successfully argued and defended appeals in United States Circuit Courts of Appeals and state appellate courts.
Beyond isolated appeals, Goldberg Segalla can help clients gain vision and perspective with regard to the larger legal landscape. Thanks to diligent and constant work to keep current on trends in civil defense and nascent issues affecting our clients, our attorneys can understand each client’s goals in staying or changing the legal landscape beyond a specific appeal. Our collective knowledge and experience allow our clients to successfully monitor statewide and nationwide trends, using appeals to help attain our clients’ vision.
