The Appellate Lawyers: the premier guide to recommended appeals attorneys, practice area news and legal insights:

TAL provides a concise and up-to-date guide to leading appellate attorneys across the country. Our research covers all 50 states and a wide selection of specialist practice areas, with featured attorneys being selected based on the results of peer nominations, in-depth research, awards and client feedback.

Top appellate attorneys must also be skilled oral advocates. Our recommended lawyers have vast experience reviewing the entire record, including trial transcripts, evidentiary materials, and motions to determine which grounds, if any, exist as a basis for your appeal.

Each year, only one attorney per state is selected and recommended in our guide. The selection process is independent and it is not possible to request entry. Inclusion is by invitation only.
