Appellate Law

Strong Pipkin’s appellate experience is broad and diverse, with proven and well documented success in both State and Federal Courts.  Our appellate attorneys combine creativity  and meticulous attention to detail to produce winning  and cost effective results. 

We are a litigation firm, and know the value of early recognition and analysis of potential appellate issues to implement well conceived trial strategy that preserves any trial error.   We realize that a good motion practice is often a  predicate for any ultimate appeal.  We work to make sure our appellate lawyers have every advantage.

Strong Pipkin understands that not every court ruling goes our way.  But we stand ready to fight any ruling that is contrary to the law and  prejudices our client’s rights.  We have aggressively and successfully pursued mandamus of court rulings, and have the resources available to meet the accelerated time constraints required in mandamus actions.

We handle interlocutory appeals and appeals involving special appearances, jurisdiction, and venue.  We have successfully handled appeals upholding summary judgments and reversing adverse dispositive motions.

We also represent clients who come to us after  trial, to fight or preserve a  jury verdict.  Our experienced counsel can effectively give advice on the legal issues involved and provide realistic expectations. We work closely with the client to project and budget costs  to make sure all appellate efforts are well conceived and cost effective.

Our success includes appeals involving personal injury, commercial litigation, breach of contract, employment contracts, misrepresentations, fraud, easements, maritime claims, property damage, appraisals, attorneys fees, damages, toxic tort, sophisticated user, condemnation, probate and oil and gas matters.

Whether it be in any Texas appellate court, including the Supreme Court, or any Texas Federal Court or the U.S. Court of Appeals for the  5th Circuit, Strong Pipkin has the experience, talent, resources and track record to handle any legal challenge.
