Clients turn to Bressler for their high-stakes appeals because of our Appellate Attorneys' decades of extensive expertise and their deep understanding of each client's industry, issues, and concerns. We represent individuals, businesses, corporations, and organizations across the country, in sophisticated appellate matters, and provide appellate advice and analysis in complex legal issues, in all substantive areas of law, at the trial level. 

Our distinguished Appellate practice is known for our in-depth knowledge of our clients' businesses and the substantive law governing them, combined with extensive experience before federal and state appellate courts. Our Appellate team contains the Committee Chair of the New Jersey State Bar Association’s Board of Trustees’ Amicus Committee, and the Vice Chair of its Appellate Practice Committee. Members of our Appellate practice have appeared before the Appellate Division over 100 times, and before state Supreme Courts more than two dozen times on many landmark and seminal cases.

In our Appellate practice, as in all of the litigation and dispute resolution services of our litigators, we maximize the full resources of the firm to meet clients' needs. Our Appellate attorneys are involved in strategy during all phases of the litigation process -  including preparation of trial briefs on significant issues and consultation with trial counsel to assist in trial strategy - to ensure that the case is best positioned for appellate success even while pursuing satisfactory dispute resolution in the trial.

Effective appellate advocacy requires a skill set that is distinct from other forms of litigation.  We have keen insight into the most strategic and compelling appellate tactics, including reliable legal analysis, oral argument, and brief-writing abilities. Our Appellate services are grounded in our careful research, meticulous writing and advocacy skills, and the acute identification of meritorious arguments. Further, many of our Appellate attorneys started their careers with an appellate clerkship or other associated governmental expertise, which adds invaluable insight and experience to their work for clients before these appellate courts. Our knowledge and proficiency in appellate skills, coupled with a first-hand understanding of how appellate judges decide cases, enables us to effectively and efficiently represent our clients' interest to an unparalleled degree.

As part of our Appellate practice, our attorneys are often asked to serve as counsel to organizations wishing to participate as amicus curiae. In this capacity, we serve as a "friend of the court" on behalf of our clients affected by important legal or policy issues. A strong understanding of our clients' businesses and industries enables us to identify key policy issues and arguments for influential amicus curiae briefs. We assist clients seeking to impact or change established precedent, providing crucial assistance to the courts consistent with furthering our clients' goals and objectives.
