How We Maximize Our Clients’ Chances Of Success

Writing appeals requires a great deal of study and attention to detail. A successful appellate law attorney should have a knack for writing in a very specific style. Appellate briefs are dense documents that require attorneys to not only maintain cohesive narratives but also to support those narratives with case law and statutory language. A crafter of appeals must know the law, how it should apply and how it has applied in similar cases.
Attorneys at this firm are known for devoting the necessary hard work to writing briefs that give our clients their best chances of winning or defending against appeals.

Will An Appeal Be Likely In Your Litigation Matter?

In all litigation at our firm, our lawyers consult with attorney John Whitesides throughout the underlying case to ensure any issues for appeals will be preserved.

This proactive approach benefits all clients whose cases are headed for litigation – whether or not their cases go on to appeals. Attorney Whitesides has a reputation for proficiency and skill in breaking down complex procedural and substantive legal arguments.
