Representing Clients In Federal Civil Appeals

The last opportunity for businesses to gain or protect a good resolution of a legal dispute is through the state and federal appellate law process. The process is complex, deadlines are critical, and either three-judge panels (rather than judges or juries) or in the case of bankruptcy appeals, a single district judge, makes the initial determination.

Our attorneys have vast knowledge and experience handling federal civil appeals. Both Shelby A. Jordan and Pete Holzer have long been admitted to all of the federal district courts in Texas, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals, 5th Circuit, Shelby Jordan has also been admitted to the U.S. Court of Appeals, 11th Circuit, and the U.S. Supreme Court.

Understanding The State and Federal Appellate Process

Justices in these courts have an exact protocol and demand that attorneys get right to the point. Federal appeals court usually only give each side about 20 minutes or less during oral arguments, thus the ability to communicate with appellate judges is critical.

Our attorneys have argued many multimillion-dollar cases at the federal appellate level. These have involved business reorganization matters pertaining to contract and business disputes, leases, lease assumption and rejections, intellectual property, commercial real estate and purchase or sales of assets. We've represented clients in a large number of commercial and business torts matters at the state and federal appellate level.

Our lawyers know how to think on their feet and argue to the point. We do all of this by keeping our appellate caseload small and concentrating all of our energy on single cases. The experience we have provides you the needed advantage in trying these cases successfully. We do not give up on your case until every legal option is exhausted.
