Trials can sometimes go awry, despite favorable evidence and best efforts to the contrary. With many former law clerks for state and federal court judges, one former bankruptcy judge, former and current law professors and a contributing author of the Louisiana Appellate Practice Handbook, Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett’s lawyers are ideally qualified to successfully handle their clients’ appeals in federal and state court systems. While we often represent clients in the appeals of matters we have handled at the trial level, we frequently handle appeals for clients represented by other firms in trial courts and also file amicus briefs for industry groups and others interested in a particular appeal. Our appellate practice group draws lawyers from other disciplines within the firm. By doing so, we ensure that the group has the requisite depth to address the most novel issues effectively and provide a nimble resource for our clients’ post-trial concerns. Our appellate services include:

• Preparing post-verdict motions
• Reviewing the trial record
• Analyzing and researching legal issues
• Developing the appeal strategy
• Preparing appellate briefs, including amicus briefs
• Identifying possible amicus parties to support a litigant
• Presenting oral arguments
• Preparing post-argument motions

Gordon Arata Montgomery Barnett approaches appellate advocacy with the same professionalism, sensitivity and commitment that marks all our work.
