Appellate attorneys concentrate their practice on advocating cases before state and federal appellate courts, including state supreme courts and the United States Supreme Court. Appellate attorneys seek to correct errors of trial court judges and persuade appellate courts to overturn lower court decisions.
The Deutsch Kerrigan team of appellate attorneys are experienced in overturning unfavorable opinions and upholding favorable ones in the United State Supreme Court, the United States Courts of Appeals, and the Louisiana and Mississippi Supreme Courts and Courts of Appeals. We have saved our clients millions of dollars through the appeals process, and our clients can benefit from our appellate counselors working hand-in-hand with our litigation attorneys during the course of a trial.
Today, effective appellate litigation advocacy begins before trial with strategic planning to preserve issues for review. Whether preserving error and identifying issues before verdict or appealing after judgment, the Appellate Practice Group at Deutsch Kerrigan has a proven record of reversing adverse judgments and reducing unreasonable verdicts.
