Appellate attorneys review and appeal decisions made by lower courts, including trial courts. This requires an understanding of complex legal concepts and procedures, along with meticulous attention to detail that is paramount for success. Appellate attorneys must be diligent in researching applicable case law, statutes, and regulations, as well as staying apprised of ongoing developments within the evolving legal landscape. Furthermore, appellate attorneys must have strong written communication skills to ensure they can persuasively convey their arguments to appellate judges. Our appellate attorneys also help our trial attorneys prepare for trial by drafting jury instructions, trial briefs, motions for directed verdicts, and other dispositive motions.
If you’re considering an appeal involving a civil case, it is important to choose an attorney who has the necessary experience and knowledge regarding the law. Our appellate attorneys have successfully argued cases before the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, United States Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Texas Court of Appeals, and Texas Supreme Court and are prepared to advise and assist you during your appeal.
