Appellate Practice

Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm has skilled in-house attorneys with significant experience in appeals in civil and administrative cases in the areas of medical malpractice, personal injury, insurance coverage, employment discrimination, contract enforcement and workers’ compensation, among others.

Its appellate attorneys, who represent clients in Florida and federal courts, have briefed and argued cases in all the Florida District Courts of Appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Moreover, the firm’s appellate division provides trial support and research assistance to its trial attorneys to help avoid appellate issues and appropriately preserve those issues that may need to be addressed in appellate court. Having in-house appellate specialists enables the firm to handle, internally, any complex legal issues that arise during the litigation process and post-trial appeals. In this way, Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm is able to efficiently resolve issues without having to involve outside counsel, which is often more time-consuming and costly for clients.

The firm also leverages its appellate attorneys’ experience conducting research of legal topics to provide detailed opinion letters to its clients as well as trial support and appellate assistance to trial attorneys outside of the firm. Attorneys with other law firms and their clients often turn to Haliczer Pettis & Schwamm’s team of experienced appellate attorneys to help evaluate the issues in a given case and advocate for successful results.
