The truth of the matter is that not all cases end in settlement or at the trial court level. Instead, adverse rulings during or at the end of a trial can make or break any case. Similarly, the party prevailing at the lower court level must have experienced appellate lawyers on their side to preserve a favorable decision to ensure that the final judgment is not overturned on appeal.
As a result, appeals require seasoned lawyers like us—lawyers who understand the unique audience of the appellate courts and their expectations. We know how to craft persuasive themes, how to make a brief resonate with the appellate courts, and how to tailor the arguments on appeal in the most effective manner. Our lawyers have honed their appellate skills through years of experience in the state and federal appellate systems and through state and federal clerkships, including the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
We are experienced in representing clients in state and federal appeals involving a wide range of practice areas including personal injury, large-scale casualty, business litigation, and other complex civil disputes. Our lawyers are licensed and admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court, the Louisiana Supreme Court, and the intermediate federal and state appeal courts in Louisiana.
We are also often called upon to serve as appellate counsel in matters tried by other firms. If you have questions regarding a potential misapplication of the law, legal errors or mistakes made by counsel, or other concerns regarding a prior ruling on your existing case, it is important to act quickly before filing deadlines lapse. Contact us and we will happy to sit down with you for a free consultation about your case.
