Experienced Appellate Advocacy
Appeals involve a different skill set than trial work. Legal writing plays a much bigger role. Additionally, identifying strong grounds for appeal is essential for success.
At Hassett Glasser, P.C., we have decades of experience navigating appeals in both state and federal courts, including the Arizona Supreme Court. Our award-winning attorneys have prosecuted and defended numerous appeals involving a wide range of legal issues. We have a special focus on appellate work involving insurance law and professional liability cases – core areas of practice for our firm – and we frequently author amicus briefs on behalf of the insurance industry.
How Strong And Effective Legal Writing Paves The Way For Success On Appeal
Much of our success in appellate work derives from our strengths in legal research and writing. Persuasive, well-crafted briefs are often the key to success on appeal. Unlike at trial, where oral arguments and presentation of evidence play a much larger role, appeals are often decided on the strength of the briefs alone. That is where our lawyers shine.
As a testament to their legal writing capabilities, our attorneys have published numerous articles addressing various legal topics. They also co-authored a book on the duty to advise in the insurance context.
