Thank you for your interest in communicating with Best & Flanagan LLP through one of its lawyers or paralegals.

By sending the email (and any information contained therein), you understand and agree that no attorney-client relationship is created or exists between us.

If you are not already a client, please do not provide us with any information relating to your legal matter(s) without first speaking to one of our lawyers, as any information provided before we confirm that we are willing and able to consult with you about becoming a client, may not be privileged, confidential, or protected information, and could be used against you if we represent a party adverse to you.

Best & Flanagan’s experienced appellate attorneys have the skills and knowledge to maximize your chances on appeal. Our appellate lawyers have extensive appellate briefing experience and frequently present appellate oral arguments in state and federal appellate courts.

We can handle your appeal in its entirety, or add a fresh approach to your case strategy by working in collaboration with your existing or trial counsel. Our appellate litigators also add value to trial court proceedings, by lending an appellate-focused perspective at the pleading stage, as well as when bringing or opposing motions to dismiss or for summary judgment. 

An appellate perspective is also critical to apply to pretrial submissions, such as motions in limine and jury instructions. We can also advise in making the record and preserving issues during trial, provide trial monitoring on high-value or high-stakes matters, and handle or assist with post-trial motions, where the appellate issues are often framed. 

With backgrounds as judicial clerks and leaders and members in appellate bar associations, and dozens of appeals under our belts, our appellate litigators have the experience and perspectives to give you a strategic edge on appeal.


Our appellate attorneys can serve as your lead appellate attorneys, perfecting, briefing, and arguing your appeal. 

In addition to full appellate representation, our appellate team can assist clients and co-counsel with:

  • Moot courts for appellate and dispositive motions 
  • Analysis of potential issues and challenges on appeal
  • Trial monitoring and error preservation prior to and during trial
  • Assistance with post-trial motions
  • Appellate motions and writs
