CIVIL AND FAMILY APPEALS
Arguing an appeal requires more than a command of legal precedents. The advocate must have an in-depth understanding of procedural, philosophical and policy concerns of our state appellate courts, all of which are crucial to judicial decision-making. The attorneys in our Appellate Unit bring varied perspective to their understanding of those concerns.
Our Appellate team members apply their skills at the trial level and help further enhance the quality of the firm's trial advocacy. Our trial litigation team often consults with our Appellate Unit in shaping the scope of litigation from the outset, developing effective trial strategy, producing outcome-determinative motions, and preserving issues for post-trial remedies.
The Appellate Unit takes appeals from unfavorable results, and defends favorable judgments against potential reversal. Our attorneys can also assist you in preparing your case for trial, including moot trials, and help preserve important issues for a potential appeal. We find that it can be advantageous for trial lawyers to consult with our appellate experts when drafting or responding to summary judgment motions, motions to dismiss, motions in limine, and jury instructions, all of which frequently contain issues that are later subject to appellate review. It is never too early to call on our Appellate Unit, whether before the filing of a complaint or upon the release of an Appellate Court decision.
