When a client’s dispute resolution needs reach beyond the trial court level, the attorneys in our Appellate Litigation Practice Group step in and utilize their extensive experience to seek a favorable resolution on appeal. Our firm has active state appellate practices in Alabama, Florida and Mississippi and regularly represents clients in federal appeals before the Eleventh Circuit, Fifth Circuit and, at times, the United States Supreme Court.

Skilled Appellate Lawyers for State and Federal Appeals

The attorneys in our Appellate Litigation Practice Group have a robust appellate practice, from analyzing the grounds for filing or defending an appeal, to brief writing, and to preparing and presenting oral argument. At the appellate level, counsel must have a thorough understanding of the case not only from the appellate perspective but also from the trial lawyer’s perspective. Our appellate lawyers are intimately familiar with all pertinent aspects of litigation; and, when handling on appeal a case that our firm handled at the trial level, our appellate lawyers collaborate with the trial team to build and execute targeted and comprehensive appellate strategy.
