We regularly represent carriers in appeals arising out of coverage and bad faith lawsuits. We are also regularly asked to represent insureds on appeal when they are being defended by their liability carriers under liability policies.
Error Preservation and Motion to Practice
Our appellate team is frequently retained before or during a trial to help draft dispositive motions, assist with drafting motions in limine, and work with trial counsel to preserve all necessary error for appeal.
Following a verdict, our appellate specialists regularly assist in preparing and filing the necessary legal motions to attempt to persuade a trial court to change a jury verdict or to preserve the necessary legal issues for appeal.
We are regularly retained to obtain emergency relief for our clients from discovery orders, orders denying severance and abatement, or other related issues needing interlocutory relief.
