Whether your goal is to reverse an adverse ruling or protect a favorable one, winning an appeal requires special skills – concise and persuasive writing, expertise in oral advocacy, superior research abilities and knowledge of the rules that are unique to this practice. Trusting an appeal to an attorney who lacks appellate experience can cost thousands of dollars or cause a meritorious appeal to be lost because of procedural pitfalls.

Hancock Estabrook is dedicated to providing the highest-quality appellate services, combining skills and experience to win high-stakes appeals. Our talented attorneys have authored law review articles and worked as judicial clerks for state and federal court judges, and are often invited to speak at continuing legal education (CLE) seminars.
