The conclusion of trial court proceedings is often just the first hurdle in litigation. Our appellate team has the knowledge and experience required to obtain or maintain a successful outcome for our clients within the nuanced landscape of the appellate courts.

We have successfully handled numerous appeals on behalf of professionals, corporations and insurance companies in federal and state appellate courts throughout the Southeast. Members of our team understand the procedures unique to appellate advocacy, a skill-set that often falls outside the traditional trial litigation tool-kit.

Carlock Copeland attorneys craft thoughtful and cost-effective appellate strategies through careful assessment of potential trial court errors. We help clients weigh the risks and rewards of an appeal. We then execute upon the agreed strategy by framing issues on appeal in briefing and at oral argument in order to help our clients either preserve a judgment in their favor or get a second chance in the trial court.
