The attorneys in our Appellate Practice Group have broad experience and expertise in appellate practice, and are well-prepared for success at the appellate level.  Our attorneys, whose ranks include former judicial clerks and briefing attorneys, bring talented scholarship, thoughtful judgment, clear writing abilities and polished legal argument skills to the appellate matters they undertake. We frequently represent clients through briefing and argument before the Texas state appellate courts throughout the state, as well as in federal courts of appeals.  We are also skilled in mandamus and appellate motions practice, including emergency appeals matters.

Our appellate attorneys are also integral members of the trial team.  At the trial level we prepare motions, briefs, post-verdict matters, proposed orders and judgments, and jury charges to appropriately preserve and frame the legal arguments and improve opportunities for success on appeal.  Recently, McGinnis Lochridge attorneys have played important roles in a number of appellate matters, concerning topics ranging from water rights and oil and gas to wrongful death and commercial, employment, contract, intellectual property, probate, and family disputes.
