On our clients’ behalf, Jones Waldo attorneys have brought or defended dozens of direct appeals from decisions rendered by lower courts. We consult closely with our clients to determine the best appellate strategy and then guide them through the initial procedural phase of direct appeals. Many collateral issues can arise during this often complicated phase of the proceedings, including whether to seek or object to a stay of the lower court’s decision; whether to obtain or object to the posting of an appeal bond; and whether to seek or object to expedited appellate review. Our attorneys have successfully litigated these and other issues related to procedural aspects of appellate proceedings.
After the procedural phase is complete, Jones Waldo attorneys have the background and experience to present top-flight, substantive appellate arguments, both through written briefing and oral appellate advocacy.
