What is Appellate Litigation?

Contrary to popular belief, appeals and trials serve different purposes. While a trial focuses on the facts of the case and strives to get the jury and judge to agree, an appeal is focused on “the application of law to facts” (Justice Shaw, Florida Supreme Court). The appellate court leaves behind the emotional argument and ensures that the law is being applied fairly and consistently to the facts of each and every case.

Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey &Fronrath also handles appellate litigation, which involves experience in appellate procedure, sophisticated legal analysis, and the art of persuasive writing and oral advocacy. Appeals require in-depth legal research as well as logically developed arguments and concise, compelling briefs.

Experienced Litigation Lawyers in West Palm Beach

Because of the complex legal issues involved in many of our cases, our clients are often required to participate in the appeals process. Therefore, it is invaluable to have our own appellate attorney who is already very familiar with the case. Margaret M. Bichler and our team of Florida personal injury attorneys can handle all of the facts and legal issues involved in an appeal, all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.

Florida Appellate Litigation Attorney Margaret M. Bichler assists our trial attorneys, as well as attorneys from other firms, in effectively addressing substantive legal issues that arise during litigation. Margaret stays current on the latest trends and changes in the law by carefully monitoring developments from the Florida and United States Supreme Courts and other key appellate courts. She is often able to persuade decision makers that injured victims should prevail because of her ability to distill complex questions, facts and laws into simple and straightforward terms.

Margaret has the advantage of working on a client’s case from the beginning and consistently works with our other trial attorneys to ensure the litigation is handled proactively. By anticipating and overcoming our adversaries’ defenses, she helps to solidify our firm’s reputation as a formidable and tireless opponent, often leading to large settlements before trial.
