Appellate Advocacy

Essex Richards’ attorneys are well-equipped to guide our clients during all states of litigation and appeal. We have many years of experience representing clients whose cases reach the appellate courts. Our lawyers have handled civil appeals from start to finish in the North Carolina Court of Appeals, the North Carolina Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. In addition to handling appeals for our own clients, we also handle or consult on appeals for other law firms who may lack the time, knowledge, or experience to take their case through the appellate process.

Our Appellate Advocacy practice group excels in writing briefs and arguing appeals. Our experience also gives us an intimate knowledge of the applicable appellate and local rules, as well as the procedural intricacies of practicing before those specialized courts.
