Our role is your call. A trial, no matter how successful, is often only half a lawsuit. The firm, through practice chair Jack McKinley has extensive expertise handling appellate issues, both before trial and on appeal. Jack’s three decades of appellate experience includes dozens of successful outcomes in courts of appeal and many in the Supreme Court of Texas. Additionally, the firm does pre-trial and in-trial appellate work, as well as appeals, for clients desiring outside appellate assistance for other trial lawyers. We offer second opinions about issues, when desired, work cooperatively with trial counsel on jury charges and briefs, and assume full responsibility for appeals at any stage.
