Appellate Lawyers in Dallas

Handling Your Most Critical Issues When the Stakes are High

At Godwin Bowman & Martinez, our appellate team has earned a national reputation for handling complex, high-stakes litigation and securing favorable outcomes for our clients facing Mission Critical Litigation®.

When your most critical issues are on the line, you cannot afford to retain an attorney who lacks appellate court experience.

The appellate process is different from the trial court and arbitration process. We have the hard-won skills required to handle all aspects of the appellate process, including:

  • Post-verdict motions & proceedings
  • Preparation of appellate briefs
  • Oral advocacy
  • Emergency procedures including mandamus petitions
  • Recording of errors throughout the trial process
  • Pre-trial motions, including summary judgment

How Appellate Lawyers Are Different

At Godwin Bowman & Martinez, we know how to talk to judges - an essential skill in appellate proceedings. Other, equally important, skills include:

  • A comprehensive understanding of the law and its proper application
  • The expertise required to properly preserve errors and instruct the jury
  • The ability to perform meticulous research and thoroughly analyze every aspect of the record
  • Superior writing skills, since many appeals are decided on the strength of a party's legal briefs

Appellate attorneys must persuade judges to reverse a lower court's ruling, or uphold a lower court's decision, based on application of the law. An appeal does not place the facts of a case at issue, but instead questions the process the lower court used to reach its decision.
