Appeals

At Rivkin Radler, we have the experience and skills needed for effective appellate advocacy. Many of the attorneys in our Appeals Practice Group have served as clerks to appellate judges and courts and have handled more than a thousand appeals in state and federal courts across the country.

We know what appellate courts require and are adept at developing and presenting the strongest possible arguments persuasively and effectively. As a result, we have secured appellate decisions favoring our clients in a broad range of areas, including:

  • Civil Procedure
  • Commercial Litigation
  • All Aspects of Insurance Law, including:
    • Coverage analysis/policy interpretation
    • Underinsurance/uninsurance
    • No-fault first party reimbursement
    • “Serious injury”
  • Automobile liability
  • Premises liability
  • Trial practice/jury verdicts
  • Municipal liability
  • Labor law
  • Legal, medical and dental malpractice

For decades, our appellate lawyers have made new law, ensured the proper application of old law and generated the results our clients need and expect.

We prosecute, defend and argue dozens of major appeals each year—from routine or recurring issues to novel questions of first impression. Industry groups and trade associations also frequently call upon us to prepare and file amicus curiae briefs in cases affecting their interests where they are not otherwise named as parties.

Many of our clients seek our assistance for the first time on appeal, after an adverse decision in a lower court or in the face of a challenge to a favorable lower court ruling. Whatever the setting, Rivkin Radler has the skill, authority and depth of experience to manage even the most difficult appeal.
