Appellate Representation

Efficient, effective and thorough, Crisham & Holman has a track record of success in state and federal intermediate courts of appeal and courts of last resort.

Following a ruling on class certification or the completion of a trial, a case may be appealed. Cases that move from trial court to appeal, however, face a set of new challenges. The rules are different, and so are the players. Success on appeal requires a deep understanding of the law and appellate procedure. Lawyers, skilled as they may be, must deftly select the right issues to present on appeal, write compelling briefs, and devise persuasive oral arguments to a highly sophisticated judicial audience.

Our Appellate Experience

Our appellate services include:

  • Legal research
  • Case evaluation
  • Drafting appellate briefs
  • Advising of legal considerations for appeal
  • Oral arguments
