The firm’s extensive trial practice enhances our ability to pursue and defend appellate litigation. Our civil litigators understand what it takes to preserve issues for appeal, and we know how to review a record for appealable error.
More than experience in trial law, however, the firm’s appellate experience is key to successful appellate representation. To convince a higher court to consider an appeal requires thorough preparation of a well-researched and well-reasoned brief which puts forth a compelling argument why an appeal should be heard. Our attorneys are sophisticated at determining reversible versus harmless error across the grounds for appeal.
