Skilled and Experienced Appellate Lawyers
Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial has a national appellate practice that focuses on briefing and arguing significant cases before numerous state appellate courts, the various federal circuit courts of appeal and the United States Supreme Court. We often handle appeals on matters we have litigated at the trial court level, but equally as often we are hired anew by clients to litigate appeals on cases initially handled by other firms.
Our Appellate Practice Group has substantial experience in all phases of the appellate process. It is comprised of seasoned appellate lawyers who devote a significant amount of their practice to appellate work. Many have served as judicial law clerks or interns for state and federal appellate courts. Many members of our Appellate Practice Group are recognized in Best Lawyers in America©, Chambers USA: Leading Lawyers for Business, and Super Lawyers.
When handling post-trial or interlocutory appeals, our appellate attorneys closely examine the record, conduct thorough and incisive research, develop strategy and theories, and present both written and oral arguments in a concise manner.
We understand that complicated legal issues need to be finely distilled to enhance our clients' chances of success on appeal.
As a litigation-focused firm, our appellate attorneys are often integrated at the trial court level, where we collaborate with trial counsel to analyze the facts, formulate the trial strategy, brief and argue dispositive motions and motions in limine, craft jury instructions, and frame and preserve issues for appeal. Appellate counsel consult with trial counsel during the pre-trial phases of the case and at trial when indicated.
