Appellate Practice

Clients trust our appellate lawyers to take the lead on their most important legal challenges, especially those with novel legal issues. We are often retained as appellate counsel in cases handled by other lawyers in the trial court. In addition, industry stakeholders frequently engage us to file amicus briefs in cases of great importance.

Our appellate lawyers have  litigated hundreds of significant appellate matters, including cases before the US Supreme Court. We have a thorough understanding of the appellate process and what it takes to achieve results on appeal. Many of the firm’s lawyers began their careers with appellate clerkships, including clerkships on the Third Circuit, Fourth Circuit, Sixth Circuit, and the North Carolina Supreme Court.

The members of our appellate team are leaders within the appellate bar. Eddie Speas, a former Chief Deputy Attorney General, has handled direct appeals and certiorari matters before the U.S. Supreme Court, including several closely watched cases involving voting rights and redistricting. Drew Erteschik is a board-certified appellate specialist and the incoming chair of the North Carolina Bar Association’s Appellate Rules Committee, which makes recommendations to the North Carolina Supreme Court on issues of appellate procedure.
