“Combining our different experiences is often the best way to solve a problem. ”

Appellate

We don’t just try cases successfully; we also see them through on appeal with great results. Our team has amazing experience, talent and some significant victories under its belt. Because we have appellate expertise at the firm, we are always watching for the issues that could be raised post-trial as we present cases to juries and judges.

The appeals our firm has won include business cases, cases for institutions and for individuals. For example, it was our team that, on appeal, obtained the new trial that unraveled the largest libel verdict in history against Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones & Co.

Our appellate team includes Cathy Cochran, who served as a judge on the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals for 14 years. She was highly regarded on the bench and brings unmatched legal insight to our clients’ appeals.
