Appellate Law

Steckler Gresham Cochran represents clients in a wide variety of appellate matters, such as appeals related to personal injury claims and commercial disputes. Appellate services include filing and defending petitions in original proceedings, and drafting Amicus Briefs to assist federal and state appellate courts on important issues of substantive or procedural law.

An appellate attorney at Steckler Gresham Cochran plans, researches, and drafts critical pre-trial motions, such as motions to dismiss, motions for summary judgment, and responses to motions for summary judgment. We actively assist trial attorneys in drafting favorable jury instructions, objecting to instructions and acting as appellate counsel during the trial to ensure that a proper trial record is made and that specific issues are properly preserved for appeal.

After a jury’s verdict is announced, Steckler Gresham Cochran can review the record, analyze the issues, and work hand-in-hand with trial counsel to prepare appropriate motions prior to an appeal. We can also assist trial counsel in staying the matter pending appeal, which can sometimes involve securing and posting a bond.
