M&R appellate attorneys have handled hundreds of appeals in state and federal courts nationwide. Our record of success in these cases is founded upon a nuanced understanding of issues on appeal, thorough preparation, stellar legal research capabilities, and a technical mastery of written and oral advocacy that’s simply a cut above our competitors in the legal marketplace.
It’s important to note that our considerable appellate expertise also shapes our work in trial court. We’re always careful to preserve issues for appeal, are cognizant of the need to ensure an adequate lower court record in the event of appellate review, and our litigators make it a point to advise clients on trial court strategies with the potential of appeals in mind.
Be it a direct appeal of a trial court judgment or appealable order or an extraordinary writ proceeding, M&R’s appellate experience is vast, spans the practice areas and industries we cover, and has resulted in several notable published (and unpublished) opinions.
