Our firm excels in handling cases at the appellate level. We handle appeals in both state and federal courts. Our experience includes complex matters involving substantial issues of law. We also have experience in special proceedings before appellate courts for stays and other relief.

We have several appellate attorneys with extensive appellate experience in both state and federal courts. Two of our attorneys served as law clerks for the New York State Court of Appeals, the highest court in New York State. One of our attorneys has appeared several times before the Second Circuit, the federal appeals court in New York, first as a federal prosecutor and since then in private practice.

Our appellate experience is broad, touching on cases within all of our practice areas. Just some of our recent appellate matters have involved breach of contract, real estate litigation, corporate dissolution and other commercial matters, municipal law and civil service law, as well as personal injury suits and medical malpractice matters.
