The conclusion of a trial is not always the end of a case. Both civil litigants and criminal defendants often continue pursuing their rights on appeal. Our attorneys have experience handling both civil and criminal cases at all levels of the state and federal courts inVirginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C., including the Fourth Circuit, D.C. Circuit, and Supreme Court of the United States.
Whether you plan to pursue an appeal or work to have an appeal denied, we can help fully protect your rights. Our extensive experience in the trial and appellate courts of the Mid-Atlantic provides us with the necessary knowledge to navigate the appellate process.

We conduct a thorough investigation into the details of each appeal we handle, research legal issues attendant to the appeal, craft well-written briefs for submission to the court, and persuasively present our clients’ positions to the court at oral argument.

Over the years, we’ve continued to find new ways to use our talents to assist our clients through the appeals process. While the mainstay of our practice is Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., our federal litigation team monitors developments in federal law and practice and provides invaluable assistance in instances where our attorneys seek further relief through federal habeas corpus and federal civil remedies.
