The Appellate Practice Group of Brock & Scott handles a full range of representation on appellate matters within federal and state appellate courts across our footprint. Our experience encompasses all substantive areas of law, with a concentration in real estate, residential and commercial mortgage foreclosures, complex commercial litigation, and creditor’s rights. Our seasoned attorneys have a distinct understanding of the procedural rules and nuances of appellate practice, beginning with the invocation of the court’s jurisdiction through oral argument. Our team also assists trial attorneys, both internal and outside trial counsel, during all aspects of litigation by offering litigation support by drafting substantive motions, memoranda, briefs, and responses, participating in case strategy, and attending dispositive hearings and trial to ensure legal issues are preserved for appellate review.
