Our Approach To Appellate Litigation

Because appeals are unlike other forms of litigation, effective appellate counsel requires a distinct skill set, including solid legal analysis, oral argument, and brief- writing abilities. The appellate lawyers at Vaka Law Group have the acumen in these areas to enable us to efficiently assist our clients in matters that involve, or are likely to involve, an appeal. We work closely with our clients and their trial lawyers, before, during and after trial, to identify and present the arguments most likely to lead to a positive outcome. We're there every step of the way.
