Preparing for an Appeal
Appellate Support When You Need it Most
Engaging experienced appellate counsel before trial can be a powerful tool when the stakes are high. An experienced appellate attorney can assist you and your trial counsel in formulating the winning issues, perfecting dispositive motions, preserving appellate error and more.
Perhaps most importantly, an experienced appellate strategist can assist the trial attorney in maintaining a focus on the long view in the midst of what can be an overwhelming process in the trial court.
If you feel that you or your trial attorney might benefit by involving appellate counsel prior to an appeal, please feel free to contact us to discuss your current needs.
For the busy litigator, bringing in an appellate adjunct is a solid business decision. The assistance of a seasoned appellate attorney allows busy smaller firms and sole practitioners to provide their clients with a fuller array of litigation services and a broader base of expertise. It allows them to retain clients they might otherwise have to refer to a larger firm and frees up their schedule so they can better take care of trial court matters or even work in an occasional break.
If you feel that your office or a particular client may benefit by involving appellate counsel prior to an appeal, please feel free to contact us to discuss your current needs.
We offer flexible support in the form of consultation on appellate procedure, co-counsel arrangements on appeal, legal research in the trial court, drafting of dispositive motions and briefs, and more.
Our goal is to facilitate your attorney/client relationship and to help you and your client succeed in the trial court and, if necessary, on appeal.
