Appellate Practice

Effective representation on appeal requires a skill set distinct from trial advocacy. In working with clients and trial counsel we seek to identify key issues for appeal and structure argument to achieve success.

The attorneys at Brown & Weinraub have significant experience in federal and state appellate practice. Our appellate practice attorneys are admitted in the United States Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals, as well as the New York Appellate Courts and the Court of Appeals of the State of New York. Our attorneys are also members of the Connecticut and District of Columbia Bar.

In addition to handling appeals, we provide critical services at the trial level to shape the trial record for a successful appeal.

Patrick Brown served for many years in the New York State Court of Appeals where he led the Court’s in house legal staff. He and his staff reviewed thousands of motions and briefs and assisted the Court in deciding which cases to hear. Several of our attorneys have devoted their practice to the specialty area of election law appeals.
