Appellate / Civil Appeals
Silverman Thompson's appellate practice dedicates its years of litigation experience to adjudicating all types of matters in the state and federal appellate courts. Our attorneys have briefed and argued hundreds of appeals — both civil and criminal — in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, the United States Courts of Appeals, Federal District Courts, the Maryland Court of Appeals, and the Maryland Court of Special Appeals. We are frequently called on to litigate appeals in cases that were initially handled by other law firms. The unique circumstances of challenging or defending a civil judgment or criminal conviction require distinctive skills and expertise, which our veteran attorneys provide at every stage of the appeals process, including:
- Counsel and advice as to the appropriateness of appeal and strategies for success
- Petitions for certiorari and preparations of records for review
- Representation during mediation efforts by appellate court officers
- Excellence in written and oral advocacy before all appellate tribunals
Our appeals practice is highlighted by preserving one of the largest monetary compensatory verdicts in Maryland history, and persuading change in case law in several areas of the law. We invite you to contact us or call our office at 410.385.2225 or 800.385.2243 for a complimentary consultation to see how we can make a difference for you.
