Trusting an appeal to an attorney who lacks appellate experience can cost clients thousands of dollars or cause a meritorious appeal to be lost. At Hinman, Howard & Kattell, we represent clients in all phases of civil and criminal appellate litigation. Our firm is dedicated to providing aggressive appellate representation and insightful appellate counsel on behalf of our individual and business clients.
Whether your goal is to reverse a ruling against you or protect a favorable ruling, winning an appeal requires learned skills, including superior research abilities, knowledge of the rules that are unique to each appellate court, persuasive and clear writing, and excellent oral advocacy.
Hinman, Howard & Kattell is dedicated to providing the highest-quality appellate services, combining skills and experience to win appeals. Our talented attorneys have authored law review articles and worked as judicial clerks for state and federal court judges, including appellate courts, and are often invited to speak at continuing legal education (CLE) seminars.
Services to appellate litigants include preparation of the record on appeal, researching and writing the appellate brief, analyzing the opposing party’s submissions, and orally arguing the appeal. Of utmost importance is communication with our clients during the appeal process to ensure that the highest quality written materials are prepared that reflect the strengths of each client’s appeal, and to keep clients informed as to the status and progress of their appeals.
