Going the Extra Mile on Your Case
Unfortunately, winning a court battle does not always mean your legal struggles are over. In some cases you may be forced to attempt to maintain a favorable outcome, or, if the original ruling was not in your favor, you may be seeking to overturn that adverse ruling. In order to successfully accomplish either of these outcomes, you must have a clear, concise appellate brief and preservation of the issue for appeal.
The appellate lawyers at Peck, Hadfield, Baxter and Moore are extremely experienced in providing concise, forceful appeal briefs as well as in delivering the persuasive oral arguments. We have the necessary skills to identify the critical legal issues of your appellate case based on the applicable standards of review. Whether you are a public or private company, an individual, a governmental or non-profit organization or an industry group, Peck Hadfield can help you with your appellate case.
