Appellate litigation requires lawyers that understand the law, possess a keen understanding of appellate procedure, and are skilled oral advocates. VLA&S’s team of talented lawyers are dedicated to our client’s appellate needs, having drafted briefs and argued numerous times before state and federal appellate courts. Our appellate attorneys are prepared to pursue an effective appeal by way of written submissions and oral argument.
If a client is unhappy with a trial result, or if the opponent is likely to appeal a decision, our clients trust our attorneys with the appeals process. We provide our clients with the ability to determine if appealable issues exist; preparation, drafting and editing of appellate briefs and motions; and skillful handling of oral arguments. If our firm didn’t handle a client’s trial, we can take over for the appeal, offering a fresh perspective by taking a step back and looking at the entire context of the dispute.
VLA&S attorneys are experienced drafting dispositive pre-trial motions; drafting trial motions; and, handling post-trial motions and appeals when it becomes necessary. We assist trial counsel through all necessary phases of litigation to ensure that legal issues are properly preserved for appeal.
