A BOUTIQUE APPELLATE LAW FIRM
Appeals aren’t your typical legal matters–they’re exceptional. Different rules. Different approaches. Different consequences. Appeals also demand a lot of resources, including in-depth legal research and analysis, extensive and persuasive briefing, and thorough oral argument preparations. For many firms and attorneys, their resources are more effectively allocated to other matters and tasks.
At Tanner & Tanner Law, LLC, our experience and legal training allow us to offer a range of services to help firms, attorneys, and individuals with appeals. From significant involvement–including research, writing and oral arguments–to less assistance–like providing consulting services for case strategy or final revisions to briefs–we can help practitioners approach appeals with confidence.
For practitioners who want to focus on their regular caseload, we can handle the entire appeal, from researching to writing to oral arguments.
For firms and attorneys who want to handle an appeal themselves but are interested in assistance with strategy, we offer consulting services.
We can assist firms with writing appellate briefs, from drafting the initial document to making final revisions to an existing document.
From researching an entire appeal to providing a memo for a certain subsection, our thorough research will help you get the law right.
