Involve an appeals lawyer early in trial preparation in order to build a strong record should an appeal result, or to pursue the interlocutory appeal of a interim or temporary trial court order.

Interlocutory Appeal

The rare opportunity to challenge a trial court's interim or temporary decision before trial and final judgment. Not all decisions qualify. Very short deadlines apply!

Critical Motions

Outcome determinative motions and oppositions benefit from the assistance of an experienced appeals lawyer. Examples include a motion to dismiss, a motion for summary judgment, or evidentiary motions.

Discovery & Trial Preparation

The purpose of the trial court is to determine the facts of the case. The key is to identify and enter at trial all evidence that will prove your case and disprove your opponent's case.


The trial is over and the stakes are now very high. Your appeal is enhanced with a fresh perspective with in-depth legal analysis and focused argument and counter-argument.

Direct Appeal

Without an appeal, the judgment will become final. This is the time to challenge, and defend, a final trial court decision with an experienced appeals lawyer.

Appellate Motions & Petitions

Critical filings include a motion or petition to stay the judgment pending the outcome of appeal, a motion to allow the late filing of a notice of appeal, or an application for direct appellate review.

Further Appellate Review

The decision of an appellate court is not immediately final, but further appeal will require permission sought through a well researched, analyzed, and written application for certiorari.
