Many times, an appeal is a necessary step in finally resolving a dispute. Our legal system provides that a party may challenge a trial court’s orders and judgments. This means that a party can either be in the role of initiating an appeal, defending the appeal, or initiating an appeal on one point and defending an appeal on another. The appellate process differs from litigation in both form and substance, relying heavily on the research of purely legal issues, analysis and creativity, and persuasive writing while relying less on oral advocacy, evidence, and courtroom strategy.
Whether initiating or defending the appeal, we have represented clients in civil and quasi-criminal matters before state and federal courts on matters as diverse as asset forfeiture, company control issues, fraud, breaches of contract, injunctions, and defamation.
