Appellate

Appeals often mark the end of years of litigation and the beginning of a specialized process during which attorneys must either zealously guard a favorable trial outcome or aggressively seek to overturn an unfavorable decision or verdict.

Appellate work requires a sophisticated understanding and thorough knowledge of the law, procedural rules, intricacies of brief writing and oral advocacy, and a talent for framing and preserving issues for appeal.

At Deasey, Mahoney & Valentini, we believe this specialized litigation work requires a thoughtful, collaborative approach throughout the handling of a matter.
