Law firms without their own in-house appellate expertise regularly turn to Martin, Disiere, Jefferson & Wisdom L.L.P. for assistance involving the appeals of their cases. Because we employ some of the most effective appellate attorneys in Texas, trial lawyers looking for appellate assistance regularly retain the lawyers of our appellate section to assist them with mandamus actions, with preservation of error at trial, in drafting dispositive motions before trial, and in handling appeals in both the State and Federal systems in Texas. Our Appellate lawyers have extensive experience before both the Texas Supreme Court, the Fifth Circuit of Appeals and all the intermediate appellate courts of Texas.
The head of our appellate section, Levon Hovnatanian, is Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. He and another member of our appellate team, Bruce Ramage, both previously worked as the Chief Staff Attorney for the First Court of Appeals in Houston. Our appellate team has an impressive win ratio over the past seven years and we are well known by many appellate judges of Texas. Our appellate lawyers have particular expertise in appeals involving insurance disputes, personal injury claims (including medical malpractice and toxic torts), premise and product liability claims, business torts, employment disputes, oil and gas claims, and class action suits.
