Appellate Attorneys

A court’s order is not always the final word in your case. Through the appellate process, a higher court can review almost any decision in a matter. An appeal can be an opportunity to improve your results, and it can be headache if you need to respond to an opposing party’s appeal of a favorable decision.

Whether you are pursuing an appeal or you need to respond to one, Hertz Schram’s appellate specialists understand the unique intricacies involved in successfully navigating appellate courts. We have an eye for identifying errors made in trial courts and formulating strategies to successfully overturn unfavorable results. We also know how to defend and preserve your hard-earned trial successes at the next level.

Hertz Schram handles appeals of decisions from all stages of litigation, including pre-trial orders, summary-disposition orders, jury and non-jury trial judgments, and post-trial orders. We represent clients in appellate courts including the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court, the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. We represent individuals and businesses in appeals involving a variety of areas, including family law, employment law, real estate, probate litigation, criminal defense, personal injury, business and commercial litigation, and securities litigation and arbitration.

Appeals are not the same as trial-court and cannot be treated the same. We know the differences. We know the arenas. We know the process. We know how to get results.

Testimonials

Attorney Daniel Rucker provided our church with legal advocacy that was both highly skilled and readily accessible. His knowledge of the law and his ability to communicate and negotiate resulted in a very positive outcome in a situation we believed might have been impossible to resolve.

Marlene W.

Attorney Daniel Rucker was referred to me from a satisfied client. I, too, found my experience with Mr. Rucker very satisfactory. He was able to recover money, that I thought was gone forever, through perseverance and hard work. He was able to get the judgment I needed and all at a reasonable cost. I also was very impressed with his quick response to all my questions and concerns. I would not hesitate to recommend him to others in need of a good lawyer!
