On appeal, as in trial, Phillips, Hayden & Labbee, LLP displays tactical sophistication and a penchant for getting to the point. Our attorneys have handled appeals in all five Florida district courts of appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
At the outset of the process, we offer a fresh set of eyes on what issues to pursue—or not to pursue. We provide guidance to navigate appellate rules and procedure and on how to best construct briefs, conduct moot courts, and present an effective oral argument. We work closely with trial counsel in virtually any area of practice and do so in reviewing courts across the state.
Our attorneys have extensive experience in negotiating settlements when a case reaches the appeals stage. We also counsel clients in preparing amicus briefs and conducting moot courts, and stand ready to provide “second opinions” as to the merits of pursuing an appeal.
