Recognizing that trial court proceedings are often only the first step in the litigation process, our appellate litigators have extensive experience in all areas of appellate litigation — interlocutory appeals, extraordinary writs and post-judgment appeals — and have represented firm clients in hundreds of cases covering a broad range of substantive and procedural issues before the Arkansas Supreme Court, the Arkansas Court of Appeals and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit.

In handling a broad range of appellate and trial matters, we evaluate the unique issues and opportunities that arise on appeal and develop strategies for arguing our clients’ positions to the court. The presentation of those arguments to the appellate court combines the well-honed research, writing and oral advocacy skills that are vital to a successful appeal. Our approach has proven successful in numerous published decisions of the state and federal appellate courts.

Our appellate lawyers are active outside the courtroom as well. Troy A. Price, a member of the appellate advocacy group, wrote the section on abstracting that appears in the Arkansas Bar Association’s treatise, Handling Appeals in Arkansas. Members of the group regularly speak at seminars on appellate issues, attend local and national seminars to continue developing their skills and stay abreast of the latest developments in appellate procedure and practice.
