Gavel and scales of justice with hourglassFIND A PASSIONATE APPEALS ATTORNEY

By the time a case reaches appeal of a trial court victory or defeat, years of effort and substantial dollar amounts are almost always at stake. Appellate practice is unique and requires an understanding of specific rules and procedures. It also requires superb writing and oral advocacy skills. In short, appellate courts are often a client's last resort, and the art of persuasion stands front and center. We know this because we have extensive experience in briefing and arguing appellate cases. Our experience enables us to provide the highest quality of advocacy to our clients - through briefing and oral arguments before appellate courts. We have handled appeals in state and federal courts all across the country, including the highest court in the country - the United States Supreme Court. In 2016, Michael Pospisil argued before the Supreme Court, an experience few lawyers have had. A representative sample of the appellate cases we have worked on includes:

  • Americold Realty Trust v. ConAgra Foods, Inc., et al., 136 S.Ct. 1012 (2016)
