LITIGATION DEPARTMENT OF THE YEAR - Mid-Size Firm  ALM's Daily Report   2017 - 2016 - 2014


Skilled and Experienced Appellate Lawyers

Weinberg Wheeler Hudgins Gunn & Dial has a national appellate practice that focuses on briefing and arguing significant cases before the United States Supreme Court, the various federal circuit courts of appeal, and numerous state appellate courts. Our attorneys have represented clients in hundreds of appeals, often on matters we have litigated at the trial court level.

Our Appellate Practice Group is led by an appellate specialist and former Department of Justice federal prosecutor. It is comprised of appellate lawyers who served as judicial law clerks or interns for State Court of Appeals and who devote a significant amount of their practice to appellate work. Many members of our Appellate Practice are recognized by The Best Lawyers in America© and Chambers USA: Leading Lawyers for Business.


As a litigation-focused firm, our appellate attorneys are often involved at the trial court level, where we collaborate with clients to analyze the facts, formulate the trial strategy, brief and argue dispositive motions and motions in limine, and craft jury instructions consistent with the facts and the law.

Members of our appellate group, with experience in framing and preserving issues for appeal, frequently serve as consultants to the Trial Practice, leveraging knowledge gained through our appellate experience to guide and direct litigation strategy and brief writing.  


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.

Our appellate attorneys have successfully handled appeals that come to the firm after judgment has been entered, as well as those arising from trials that the firm originally handled.
