At every level of litigation, our appellate attorneys provide strong counsel to frame, present, and preserve the key issues, supplementing our diverse litigation team.


Our appellate attorneys bring a fresh set of eyes and work with our trial attorneys to identify key issues, shape litigation strategy, and craft clear, persuasive motions and briefing that streamline the issues for trial. When our victory is challenged on appeal or when the trial court fails to apply the law correctly, our appellate team is there to provide effective written and oral advocacy in all state and federal appellate courts.

With a practice leader who is board-certified in civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization since 1987 and former law clerks to appellate judges, we know what courts are looking for and how to present it. Our appellate attorneys have the knowledge and experience that comes with an active trial practice, which we use to stay abreast of the ever-evolving litigation landscape. This familiarity gives us a distinct advantage. Our appellate attorneys often appear at all stages of litigation, in both state and federal courts, including handling:

  • Appeals
  • Mandamus proceedings
  • Jury charges
  • Expert challenges
  • Dispositive motions
  • Embedded appellate counsel at trial
  • Litigation strategy and issue identification
  • Insurance coverage assessments, opinions, and declaratory judgment actions
