Appellate Law

Appellate law requires a comprehensive understanding of the intricacies and complexities of appellate practice. Persuading a panel of appellate judges is not the same as persuading a judge or jury during a trial. You need an advocate who not only knows the ins and outs of the appellate system, but who has a proven track record of successes, like we do, including winning three cases at the Michigan Supreme Court in one year.

The credentials of our appellate attorneys are unparalleled. Not only were our two partners staff attorneys at the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court for over ten years combined, but we have a former Michigan Supreme Court Justice – Michael F. Cavanagh – on staff as our senior appellate specialist. Former Justice Cavanagh was Michigan’s longest-serving appellate judge, and his experience and wisdom is unmatched.

We’ve also been teaching appellate advocacy skills to third-year law students for over a decade. This in-depth knowledge and unique experience make us an excellent choice for handling your appeal.

Are you an attorney looking for help on a brief? We’ll work behind the scenes as brief writers for appeals and motions while you remain the attorney of record on your case. We will also coach and consult on issues related to written and oral appellate advocacy.

For organizations looking for additional advocacy support, we also offer appellate advocacy services to those wishing to appear in a case as amici curiae.
