South Florida Appellate Attorneys
Lawsuits frequently do not end in the trial court. The losing party generally has a right of appeal to an appellate court, and that is where an appellate attorney’s research and writing skills truly are put to the test. If you need an attorney with experience in both the state and federal appellate courts, you’ve come to the right place.
State and federal trial courts generally provide litigants with a right to appeal adverse judgments and certain types of orders to an appellate court. Whether you are the one unhappy with a trial court ruling or the one who won the underlying dispute, having an appellate attorney who is knowledgeable about appellate court practice is instrumental to success.
An attorney’s research, writing, and oral argument skills are truly put to the test in appellate courts. Whether state or federal, appellate courts typically consist of multiple judges who, if oral argument is allowed/requested, will not hesitate to pepper an attorney with questions about the facts/law during those crucial minutes. Years worth of trial court litigation can be decided on the strength of appellate briefs, legal research skills, and an attorney’s ability to think quickly on his/her feet.
Our attorneys, while located in South Florida, have successfully navigated both the state and federal appellate courts around the country, winning major victories for our clients in hotly-contested cases.
