Appellate

We are available to offer a wide variety of services to our clients in addition to traditional appeals, including preparation of post-trial motions, transfer applications, and writ petitions.  We are available to consult with trial attorneys during trial preparation or the trial itself, as decisions made at those stages of a case significantly impact strategy and options at the appellate level.

Our appellate attorneys have earned honors such as the David J. Dixon Award for outstanding appellate work and membership in the American College of Trial Lawyers.  Members of our group are retained, often at the referral of other trial counsel, to represent clients in high profile appeals across the country.

Expertise

Our appellate members possess extraordinary analytical and writing skills.  We have expertise in a wide range of substantive law, as well as the rules and procedures of appellate courts.
