Appellate Practice

The highest standards of written and oral advocacy.

Caplan Cobb specializes in federal and state appellate practice. Working side by side with trial counsel, we have argued and won appeals in significant and precedent-setting civil and criminal cases.

Top-notch appellate advocacy and credentials.

Caplan Cobb’s appellate practice is founded on the highest standards of written and oral advocacy. Our work has been praised as “outstanding,” “deft,” “articulate,” “masterful,” and “of the highest quality.”

We trained under some of the most highly regarded appellate lawyers in the country and clerked for federal trial and appellate judges. Those experiences are tremendously valuable to crafting a successful appeal: determining which issues to appeal, isolating the most persuasive arguments, drafting a powerful brief, and thoroughly preparing for oral argument. We bring unique experience and independent perspective to every appeal.

We offer value to both co-counsel and clients.

We pride ourselves on our strong and collegial relationships with trial counsel, with whom we work closely to develop a comprehensive appellate strategy. We also provide value to clients through our innovative and flexible fee arrangements. We prefer to align our incentives with our client’s goals and to share the risks and rewards on appeal.
