APPEALS

Experienced Appellate Attorneys Based in White Plains, NY

A judge's decision is not necessarily the end of your lawsuit or jury trial. You and the other parties have the right to appeal the decision to a higher court, where evidence is reviewed to determine if the ruling was correct. A successful appeal might result in, for example, a new trial, a change in the amount of damages owed or the reversal of a verdict.

Our White Plains appellate attorneys are highly qualified and able to obtain a favorable outcome for you in the New York State and federal appellate system. Indeed, we have successfully argued a number of cases in the highest Court in the State of New York as well as in the Second and Third Circuit Courts of Appeal.

An appeal is decided on written briefs, the effectiveness of which are a function of the strengths of the respective attorneys--their intelligence, analytical abilities, experience and command of both language and cutting-edge legal issues.  That Collier Halpern's appellate attorneys consistently exhibits these qualities and skills is evidenced by our winning record.

How We Work

We identify the issues in your case by reading the trial transcript, consulting with you and your trial counsel and reviewing motions filed during trial. We then conduct legal research and analysis, assessing the strength of each issue. Then, having evaluated and prioritized the issues, we formulate our strategy, construct the brief and prepare for oral arguments.

Writing the brief is a lengthy, painstaking process that involves careful and creative drafting by Collier Halpern attorneys who excel in the art and science of written language. Repeated review, incorporation of input from you and your trial counsel, and constant refinement continue until the time when the brief must be filed.

During an appeal, our attorneys focus primarily on answering questions, not on asking them as they would during trial. The brief is intended to answer obvious questions. During oral arguments, our lawyers are thoroughly prepared to provide quick, thoughtful answers to questions asked by the judge.
