As a full service law firm, we follow our cases from the negotiation stage through the trial stage and then, if necessary, handle the appellate work. The area of handling appellate litigation involves a different set of rules, judges, location and skills that are a little different than those utilized in trial litigation. Each appellate court in both state court and federal court has its own set of rules that must be complied with, not just in substance but in form. The Firm is experienced in creating a plan to handle the appeal, comply with all requirements and have a successful outcome. We have handled cases in various Texas courts including the Supreme Court of Texas. Generally, appellate practice involves not only superior writing abilities but also the job of summarizing perhaps years of trial court involvement in 30 or 50 pages of documentation. We have drafted numerous appellate briefs on a broad spectrum of legal issues ranging from business disputes between private entities to litigation against the government. Our appellate litigator excels in analytical ability and writing skills. We always seek to distill complex factual and legal issues into a clear and compelling narrative. The Firm focuses an appeal on the critical legal issue in the case, performs in-depth legal research, and thoroughly develops the most favorable facts related to the issue on appeal. The Firm's history of representing a wide range of businesses allows it to present issues to appellate courts in the context of the business environment. When necessary, the Firm explains to the appellate court how the resolution of a case may affect the community as a whole.
