Appellate Advocacy

    We are experienced appellate attorneys, crafting logical, persuasive and, often, winning arguments. 

    Our appellate lawyers handle all types and aspects of appeals at both the state and federal levels. In crafting briefs and oral arguments, we use our industry knowledge and sophisticated understanding of the law to build creative and sophisticated appellate arguments that have resulted in favorable decisions for many of our clients. We also handle administrative appeals and writ actions, often representing national and state organizations as amici curiae.
