A trial is typically only the first step in litigation. If you win or lose a trial, you still may have to deal with an appeal in a state or federal appellate court. Appellate practice is very different from trial practice and involves distinct skill sets that many trial lawyers do not have or have no reason to develop.
Our attorneys have extensive experience handling appellate matters in the Virginia Supreme Court, Federal Courts of Appeals, the US Patent and Trademark Office and other tribunals. If we handled your case in a trial court or tribunal, you can rest assured that we will provide equally excellent representation in the event of an appeal. If you have an appellate matter in a case we have not previously been involved in, we may still be able to help.
