Appellate

Appellate advocacy is critical in ensuring a positive outcome for our clients. The attorneys at Scott & Aplin LLC have years of trial experience which give them the needed perspective to help clients through the process of appealing a disappointing outcome and ensuring that during litigation all applicable arguments are made in the trial record to identify and preserve legal issues as they arise before, during and after trial in case an appeal is necessary.   The importance of preserving an issue during trial and a well-crafted appellate brief is essential to winning the appeal.  In formulating the issues on appeal, an appellate lawyer conducts thorough legal research; analyzes the legal issues considering the rule-making and policy considerations that shape the development of law; and then presents the facts and those issues and arguments selected for appeal concisely in a persuasive appellate brief.   At Scott & Aplin we know that litigation is costly both financially and emotionally and ensure that in the case an appeal, the client receives the most cost effective legal representation for a favorable outcome.
