Appellate Law, Legal Research and Litigation Support Services
Appellate services are provided in most areas of civil law. These include:
Personal Injury and Tort
Malpractice (Medical and Other)
Contractual and Commercial Matters
Divorce and Family Law
I will handle all appellate responsibilities if you so desire or I will review your case and will provide you with analysis and recommendations.
Case Review and Appellate Evaluation
You may feel “too close” to a case after living with it (and with the client) for an extended period of time. I will review your case and will provide you with detailed feedback as to the appellate issues that may be raised and as to the strength of your appellate position.
I will co-counsel with you or will handle all appellate responsibilities, as you prefer.
I will research whatever legal issues may be significant and will provide you with a detailed summary and analysis.
I will write the Brief or I will review and edit your draft, suggesting revisions and modifications.
I will also review any brief that has been submitted by your opposing counsel.
I will handle Oral Argument if you desire. Alternatively, I will assist you with your preparation for Oral Argument by:
Helping to Organize your presentation
Reviewing the strengths and weaknesses of your arguments
Raising questions and issues that may be posed by the appellate panel
Legal Research and Writing Services
Trial attorneys often do not have the time or patience to thoroughly research issues that are involved in a trial or appeal. I will provide whatever legal research you may require. I will also provide a written document for your informal use or for filing with the court (as you prefer).
I provide litigation support at the trial level. This support typically consists of:
Providing Legal Research as needed
Drafting of motions, memoranda, responses, etc.
Handling (or assisting with) key hearings
Consultation regarding trial and pre-trial strategy
Assisting with trial and pre-trial proceedings
I am willing to play as large or as small a role as you may desire in assisting you with difficult or time-consuming legal issues.
