Appeals

Kercsmar & Feltus has extensive experience handling appeals in both state and federal courts. In addition to responding to appeals for our own clients following a trial, we also handle appeals where our firm was not previously involved at the trial level. Our services range from evaluating the merits of a potential appeal to handling the entire matter through completion of the appellate process. Our appellate attorneys possess an intimate familiarity with appellate procedures and persuasive writing and the experience necessary to deal with complicated records and novel legal issues. We have experience in the Arizona state appellate system, the United States Supreme Court, as well as the Ninth and Federal Circuits. Kercsmar & Feltus also boasts three attorneys admitted to the United States Supreme Court, the highest court in the country.
