Fisher Rainey Hudson’s highly experienced appellate attorneys have argued more than 30 appeals in multiple jurisdictions throughout the country. Our appellate team is comprised of former judicial law clerks; a Concordia University School of Law professor who previously taught Advanced Appellate Advocacy; and the former co-chair of the appellate practice group at an international law firm based in Los Angeles, California.
We firmly believe that preparing for an appeal begins even before the lawsuit starts. We help our clients approach every phase of litigation with a proactive strategy as the most efficient and effective means of achieving a favorable end result. Whether you are protecting a favorable decision or appealing an adverse judgment, there is too much at stake in this final phase of the litigation to leave to chance.
We consider all appeals and, in most instances, can become involved at any stage in the proceedings. If you are already represented by trial counsel, our experienced appellate attorneys can work with you and your trial team to evaluate your case and make sure they take the steps necessary to protect your rights on appeal. Consulting with experienced appellate counsel early in litigation can help you position your case for a successful appeal while allowing your trial attorney to focus on what they are best at – conducting the trial.
Whether you call on us to help your trial team with their trial strategy, after the trial court has entered judgment, or even after the notice of appeal has been filed, our team has the skills and experience to help you gain your best advantage on appeal.
