The Team Approach for HPS
Our firm’s Appellate Practice provides trial support and research assistance to our own trial attorneys, in order to avoid and uncover any issues early in the litigation lifecycle, and properly preserve those issues that need to be addressed in appellate court.
In this way, we are able to efficiently resolve issues without having to involve outside counsel, which is often more time-consuming and costly for clients. Having in-house appellate lawyers with this specific skill set enables the firm to handle, internally, any complex legal issues that arise during the litigation process and post-trial appeals, increasing your potential for a successful outcome.
Services Provided to Outside Attorneys
HPS also leverages its appellate attorneys’ experience conducting research on legal topics in order to provide trial support and appellate assistance to trial attorneys outside of the firm. Attorneys at 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.
