Taking Your Legal Fight To Appellate Court
Appellate law is a specialty. It requires attorneys who are willing to do the research and writing it takes to produce a product that will stand up to the scrutiny of appellate court judges. The attorneys at Mercy Carter, L.L.P., understand this and our work has resulted in significant success.
Our appellate advocacy has been responsible for changes to and definition of laws. We have the experience and record to bring your appeal to the next level. If you are involved in a lawsuit that is moving to the appeals stage, please call our Texarkana, Texas, office at 903-794-9419.
Our Experience Gives You An Edge
Our experienced attorneys work with individuals and businesses who were parties in a lawsuit. We also work with trial attorneys who are reluctant to accept an appeal due to time constraints, location or other conflicts. Not every lawyer has the experience or interest it takes to handle a case on appeal. At Mercy Carter, L.L.P., we do. In fact, partner John Mercy is certified in civil appellate law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.
A good trial lawyer is not necessarily a good appellate attorney; however, our attorneys have achieved success in both areas. We can stand behind our claims of effective appellate advocacy in appeals from state and federal district and circuit courts, administrative agencies and the United States District Courts in Texas and Arkansas.
Our attorneys handle the following matters:
- Preparation of appellate briefs
- Petitions for review and petitions for writ of certiorari
- Oral advocacy in appellate proceedings
- Analysis of trial records for appellate potential
- Original proceedings, including mandamus
- Post-verdict proceedings in trial courts
- Preparing and arguing jury charges
- Preservation of error in trial
