Presenting the Best Possible Case on Appeal

At McNamee Hosea, we are positioned to see you through the most critical stages of litigation, whether at trial or before an appellate court. Our Maryland appellate law attorneys have what it takes to master the trial record, file post-trial motions and effectively litigate appellate issues, when necessary.

The lawyers in our appellate litigation practice are highly skilled at working cooperatively as part of a team — alongside trial counsel and subject-matter experts — to preserve and present the best possible case on appeal and maximize our clients' chances for success.

Offering a Coordinated Effort to Protect Your Best Interests

Our skilled appellate law attorneys work closely with lawyers from our firm who handle litigation matters and other areas of the law, including:

We coordinate with them not just when the case is on appeal. We also collaborate together to ensure relevant issues have been properly raised and preserved at the trial level for eventual appellate review.

Handling All Levels of Federal & State Appeals

Our legal team is qualified to handle appeals at every level of the state and federal court systems, including the Court of Appeals of Maryland, the Court of Special Appeals of Maryland, the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and the United States Courts of Appeal for the Fourth Circuit and District of Columbia circuits.

While our appellate team handles all post-trial matters, the type of work we regularly engage in includes:

  • Providing legal analysis and strategy
  • Thorough review of the trial record
  • Comprehensive research of the legal issues involved and a critical analysis of those issues
  • Crisp, clear and persuasive written arguments
  • Preparation and delivery of a persuasive oral argument
  • Preparation of appellate briefs
  • Preparation of amicus curiae briefs
  • Preparation of petitions for writ of certiorari
  • Filing post-trial motions for new trial, remittitur and judgment as a matter of law
  • Negotiating settlements, if appropriate

Our appellate practice holds a strong reputation because our appellate lawyers are committed to excellence in every aspect of the appeal process. We delve into the trial court record to determine the most viable arguments to present and not to present on appeal.
