Experienced Appellate Representation When You Need It Most

The appellate process has a different flavor to it — a unique dynamic, accompanied by unique rules and expectations. Even the most accomplished trial lawyers can feel out of their element at the appellate stage.

Success on appeal, on the other hand, depends on an attorney's wealth of experience and specialized skill set, on in-depth research, thoughtful writing, case preparation, persuasive presentations and on the ability to think on one's feet during intense questioning on appeal.

At Del Sole Cavanaugh Stroyd LLC our appellate team has counseled clients in a wide range of compelling legal matters and has argued scores of appeals before state and federal appellate courts. We understand the unique perspectives used by appellate courts to make determinations in complex cases and use those insights to fully benefit our clients.

Some recent appellate matters include:

  • Successfully participated in securing reargument of a superior court decision vacating an 18-million-dollar products liability award
  • Secured Supreme Court Review of a decision vacating a 5-million-dollar products liability award
  • Successfully argued for reversal of a trial court decision denying a new trial in a products liability case applying the Tincher standards
