Appellate Litigation

Hackleman, Olive & Judd’s appellate attorneys are experienced advocates in commercial litigation appeals in state and federal court. Our appellate attorneys also provide litigation support to our trial attorneys, in order to prevail at the trial level and preserve any issues for potential appellate review. Our attorneys aim to provide such support in a cohesive manner, so that efforts are collaborative and not duplicative. Our appellate practice group is made up of accomplished writers and oral advocates who specialize in maintaining trial victories on appeal or on seeing that cases are overturned where we believe they were wrongly decided.

Members of our team have briefed and argued cases in Florida’s state courts of appeals and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit. We hand-pick the appeals that we accept in order to maintain a manageable caseload and to provide your case with the specialized attention it deserves. Our appellate attorneys understand that victory on appeal requires effectively compressing years of litigation history into a compelling narrative, while often interposing such narrative with complex legal issues. Additionally, our clients hire us when they have received an unfavorable verdict at trial and need a firm that will design an effective post-verdict strategy that will maximize their chances of success on appeal.
