Appeals Attorney Dallas
A case does not always end with a verdict, a court�s judgment or a trial judge�s ruling. The appellate process is often an important step in protecting a client�s right to a correct outcome. Trial lawyers, both within and without the firm, and clients often call upon Underwood Perkins�s Appellate section when they want to protect a favorable outcome or overturn adverse judgments and rulings on appeal. Our appellate attorneys have appeared in most of the Texas Courts of Appeals, in the United States Court of Appeals for the Third, Fifth and Eighth Circuits and in the Texas and United States Supreme Courts.
Our firm�s appellate attorneys have experience in mandamus proceedings, appeal from summary judgments and dispositive motions, appeals from grants or denials of injunctions as well as traditional appeals from final judgments.
Our firm�s Appellate section assists clients in a variety of ways, from handling appeals in cases conducted by the firm and by outside counsel, to consulting with litigators on discovery issues, dispositive motions, jury instructions and post-trial motions. This section also consults during trial in order to protect the appellate record and preserve issues for appeal.
At Underwood Perkins, our
attorneys are comfortable with whatever role best suits the client�s
needs, ranging from working with outside trial counsel to direct representation
to multi-team representation. The goal of the firm�s Appellate section
is to deliver quality representation cost effectively and especially
to preserve success.
