The Appellate Brief is Where We Shine.

Appellate work is a dynamic and growing component of our litigation practice.  Our Appellate group is attuned to the financial realities and sensitivities inherent in any adverse monetary judgment. At its core, appellate work involves making  a more compelling argument than your adversary. This involves the type of conceptualizing, strategizing, articulating and effectuating skills Forman Holt attorneys have.

The appellate brief is the central, most critical element of any appeal. That’s where we shine.

The appellate brief is the central, most critical element of any appeal, where all of the thought, sweat and analysis is condensed into a single cohesive and integrated product that is presented to the appellate tribunal with no other purpose than leading the Court to the inescapable conclusion that our client should prevail on the appeal. Our attorneys are skilled at developing and presenting clear, concise arguments addressing the issues on appeal.

Our attorneys have successfully won appellate arguments in front of the Third Circuit as well as in federal district court.

In recent years we have appeared with increasing frequency before the appellate courts on a state court level.

  • Talented appellate lawyers who think like appellate judges
  • Intimate knowledge of appellate procedure
  • Brief writers who know how to relay the story through a clear narrative
