Appellate Law

Whether you were successful at the trial of your matter or not, an experienced appellate lawyer is essential as you face appeal. Most trial lawyers lack experience before appellate courts and are ill-suited to provide the thoughtful, nuanced legal arguments and context that appellate courts require, where logos reigns over pathos. Using an appellate lawyer to either attack or defend your trial court verdict is especially important because an appellate lawyer provides a fresh set of eyes on your case—one who sees the arguments and evidence presented at trial objectively, and who is better able to discern your case’s strengths and weaknesses than trial counsel.
