Appellate Law

At Seltzer Caplan McMahon Vitek, we know that appellate advocacy requires exceptional attention to detail. Successfully pursuing an appeal demands mastery of a complete legal repertoire, from the “big picture” encountered in the trial context to the rules and procedures that may be applicable to the appeal. 

Research, experience, legal sophistication, and good judgment all must be harmonized into an appeal of such persuasive strength that it motivates an appellate court to overturn a trial court’s decision. Likewise, successfully defending an appeal to preserve a hard-fought victory at trial requires the same effort and expertise.

With a strong record based on pursuing and defending appeals with both diligence and energy, SCMV has the expertise to handle appeals in both state and federal courts. 

When a business, organization, or individual is either seeking to preserve a victory or considering pursuing an appeal, as our client, you’ll have aggressive and skilled attorneys on your side.
