The Appellate practice puts a premium on first-hand knowledge of the courts.  So it should come as no surprise that many of our attorneys are former judicial clerks of the courts in which they now practice.  Our Appellate lawyers have practiced extensively before both the state and federal appellate courts where their legal knowledge and procedural and practical experience enables them to deal with the complex and rule-intensive requirements of the various appellate courts. 

We recognize the value of amicus curiae briefs in appeals that raise novel legal issues, and work with our clients to identify and invite the participation of potential amici in appropriate cases.

Our appellate experience is vital to the success of our litigation matters, whether we seek to preserve a hard-won trial victory or to persuade the appellate court to overturn an adverse trial court ruling or a jury's verdict.
