Appellate procedure can be complex, technical, and daunting, even for otherwise good trial attorneys. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling appeals before the North Carolina Court of Appeals, the North Carolina Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit.
Three of the firm’s attorneys have clerked for appellate court judges at the North Carolina Court of Appeals and three of the firm’s attorneys have served as law clerks for the United States District Court (Eastern District of North Carolina and Middle District of North Carolina) and United States Bankruptcy Court (Middle District of North Carolina). On a regular basis, the firm is retained to prepare amicus briefs and to handle or assist with appeals that were originally handled by another firm. Often, a “fresh look” can be invaluable when a case is appealed. The firm has been involved in appeals in all areas of its practice including professional malpractice, insurance coverage, and general liability cases.
