Appellate Practice

The Appeals Process in Fort Lauderdale

Making sure the law and the evidence support the ultimate outcome of the case requires an attorney to have a deep understanding of both trial and appellate law. Appeal cases rely heavily on legal persuasiveness and the record as established at the trial level to show an appellate panel or judge that a trial was correctly done or was flawed. The Conrad & Scherer Appellate Attorney team has extensive experience advocating for our clients’ interests in venues at all levels of the justice system, from state and federal appellate courts to state supreme courts to the Supreme Court of the United States. We’ve successfully handled appeals on a broad range of issues, including securities litigation, class actions, mass torts, product liability, commercial disputes and more.
