Appellate Matters

OUR ATTORNEYS HAVE VAST AND WIDE RANGING APPELLATE EXPERIENCE IN BOTH THE STATE AND FEDERAL COURTS, INCLUDING NUMEROUS APPEARANCES BEFORE NEW YORK'S COURT OF APPEALS.

Our attorneys have acquired their expertise not only by drafting briefs and making oral arguments in hundreds of cases, but also through their experience as clerks to appellate judges, drafting appellate court decisions.

GMC's appellate attorneys recognize the distinctions between trial advocacy and appellate advocacy, which involves persuading panels made up of multiple experienced judges on issues involving the applications of principles of law to the particular facts of the case before the court.

Our appellate attorneys have been recognized regionally and nationally as attorneys with exceptional writing skills and superior oral advocacy skills. We are frequently called upon to speak at conferences and seminars on issues related to appellate practice.

Our attorneys are frequently engaged by other attorneys to handle their appeals due to our skills and experience. Our appellate attorneys not only draft briefs and argue appeals, but also prepare complex motions, address evidentiary issues that arise during trials, and draft jury instructions.
