Trials have winners and losers.  Normally, the judge or jury gets it right, but sometimes an error occurs for which the trial result can be appealed.  I have assisted clients and counsel from other firms in appeals throughout Florida’s State and Federal Courts, including the Eleventh Federal Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court. Many of these appeals involve large personal injury verdicts.  Others involve important issues of law requiring review by an appellate court.  Either way, there is something important at stake, and the assistance of a Board Certified Appellate Attorney can be essential to giving you the best chance of success on appeal.

Trial attorneys:  Don’t wait until after a final judgment has been entered to obtain appellate co-counsel.  Help with the Motion for New Trial or other post-verdict motions can be essential to either preserving error or defending a verdict on appeal. Contact the Shannin Law Firm as early as possible to discuss your litigation to find out if bringing in an appellate co-counsel can benefit your case.
