Virginia Appeals

Whether you want to pursue an appeal or to resist one, you need a lawyer experienced in the unique world of appellate advocacy. Because of complex rules and procedures, few attorneys handle appeals. You should consult with a Virginia lawyer who focuses on appeals as soon as possible if you want to appeal your case, or if the other side has appealed your victory at the trial level. To learn more, call or email us to schedule a consultation with an experienced attorney today.

Our Appeals Experience

Appellate advocacy depends heavily on excellent writing skills and legal analysis. Our attorneys have served as editors of premier legal journals, have authored scholarly pieces and publications, and have been retained by other lawyers specifically for the purpose of using our appellate experience to assist them. We use our appellate experience and skills both to protect clients we have represented at the trial level and also to help new clients who have had other lawyers represent them at the trial level.
