Professional Services You Can Count On
Appellate Solutions, PLLC provides quality, effective legal research and writing services to support your trial or appellate team. Attorney Deborah Truby Riordan has extensive experience in assisting parties, as well as trial attorneys, in efficiently crafting persuasive motions and briefs in the trial and appellate courts of Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Kentucky, and Oklahoma, in addition to the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th and 8th Circuits. In addition, she has also acted as special counsel, assisting counsel of record from other jurisdictions in their preparation and submission of appellate briefs to the appellate courts of Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia.
Because the skills necessary for success at trial often do not translate into the skills needed for success on appeal, an effective appellate practice emanates from a collaborative effort among trial and appellate counsel. As one federal appellate judge wrote, "Appellate advocacy is, in essence, a business for legal intellectuals" and "a specialty all to itself." See Laurence H. Silberman, "From the Bench: Plain Talk on Appellate Advocacy," ABA Litigation, Spring 1994, at 3, 60. While a speciality certification is not necessary, or even available, in most states, to minimize your risks and maximize your outcomes on an appeal, you need a lawyer who has extensive experience both in navigating the procedural obstacles and in mastering the tone and discernment that are unique to appeals. Attorney Riordan has acted as lead appellate counsel in more than 60 appeals to the appellate courts of Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Missouri, and before the United States Court of Appeals for the 5th and 8th Circuits. She has also acted as special counsel, assisting counsel of record from other jurisdictions in their preparation and submission of appellate briefs to the appellate courts of Mississippi, Florida, and Georgia. When your case calls for exemplary writing and research skills, ranging from legal memoranda, and dispositive motions, to preparing or editing appellate briefs, call Appellate Solutions, PLLC for all of your legal writing needs.
