At the appellate level our attorneys are prepared to defend or challenge judgments in both state and federal court. An effective trial team must have appellate experience and know-how at every stage of litigation, not just during an appeal. Preservation of error, interlocutory and mandamus considerations, and strategizing a jury charge, to name a few, require early stage appellate expertise. The Brown Fox appellate group has vast experience addressing these issues both at the trial and appellate level.
