Effective appellate advocacy requires experience and understanding of the distinct processes and workings of appellate courts. Winning an appeal draws on skills different from those needed at trial. Clients rely on us to analyze legal issues rigorously and creatively, write sophisticated, but readable, briefs and efficiently use the limited time at oral argument to persuade judges on the most critical points in dispute. Indicative of our expertise in this area, many of our appellate cases come to us through referrals from attorneys who handled the cases at the trial court level.
