It is not only McGlinchey Stafford’s existing clients who depend upon the firm’s appellate practice group to handle appeals. In numerous instances, lawyers in other firms and national companies will retain our appellate attorneys after they have had other trial lawyers on the case.

Among the many successes of the appellate practice group are cases involving:

  • Commercial transactions
  • Constitutional law
  • Education matters
  • Labor law
  • Legal ethics
  • Lending law
  • Local governmental zoning
  • Property and contractual conflicts
  • Real estate and finance
  • Taxation

The appellate practice group includes lawyers who have served on state and federal rules committees, and have been recognized by their peers for their appellate skills by being selected as members of appellate organizations, including the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, and by serving as officers of appellate bars, including as President of the Bar Association of the Fifth Federal Circuit. In addition, a number of our appellate attorneys are former state and federal judicial law clerks, including those who have clerked in state supreme courts and in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
