Trial courts and juries can sometimes make mistakes, and, in almost every case, the party that loses thinks the trial court or jury made a mistake. This means that almost every business will eventually find itself involved in appellate proceedings. With no ability to cross-examine witnesses, appellate lawyers have to work with paper and books to convince appellate justices of the validity of their client’s cause.
In addition to a substantial trial practice that offers insight into the practical aspects of everyday litigation that are ultimately scrutinized under the appellate microscope, Berger Kahn has briefed and argued hundreds of writs and appeals over the last several decades.
We have handled appellate matters ranging in importance from leading decisions that will affect entire industries to narrow procedural issues that effect one client on a single aspect of an individual case.
