Appeals What to Do After a Win or Loss

Houston Appellate Attorneys

Handling Your Appeal

Most civil cases resolve by settlement during trial court proceedings. But not all do. And when they don’t, it ordinarily means one party has won the case by a summary judgment or a favorable trial verdict. At that time, the losing side will very often file an appeal to an intermediate court of appeals. Then, if they lose again, they may file another appeal to a higher court, such as the Supreme Court of Texas or the United States Supreme Court.

If your case goes on appeal — and regardless of whether you won or lost — it is important to retain an attorney who has specific experience in handling appeals. The appellate process has unique requirements, including relatively short deadlines, and it demands particular skills apart from those involved in handling matters in the trial court, including very precise forms of legal writing and analysis, as well as the presentation of oral arguments before multi-judge panels.

Our firm has considerable experience in handling appeals across a wide range of subject matters, including breach of contract, fraud, real property (including oil and gas), and intellectual property. We have handled both the briefing and oral arguments at state courts of appeals throughout Texas, including at the Texas Supreme Court, and at federal courts of appeals around the country, including at the United States Supreme Court. Indeed, one of our attorneys, Jeremy Gaston, is one of a small number of attorneys who has both clerked on the United States Supreme Court (for Justice Sandra Day O’Connor) and argued before it as well.
