Appellate Practice

Appellate Litigation

A trial court victory is only truly a victory if it will be upheld on appeal; and, defeat in the trial courts is not truly a loss unless it cannot be reversed on appeal. At Varcadipane & Pinnisi, PC, our attorneys have extensive experience and success in appellate litigation in both New York and New Jersey appellate courts. Through our appellate experience, we can develop and implement strategies at the trial level that will ensure victory on appeal. Because our attorneys practice in both trial courts and appellate courts, we can effectively manage the record at the trial level to preserve legal issues that may arise for appeal, which is not only advantageous from a legal perspective but can often result in substantial cost savings when faced with an appeal.
Initially, we make every effort to avoid appellate courts because the process is time-consuming and expensive. However, when an appeal is necessary, you can rest assured that we have the capability and experience to effectively and efficiently litigate your case in the appellate courts.
While we hope that you retain us from the inception of your case – so that you can avoid the time-consuming and expensive process of retaining separate appellate counsel – we welcome clients who are dissatisfied with the outcome of their case at the trial level and are seeking experienced, effective and cost-efficient appellate counsel. We will always do everything in our power to minimize costs and maximize the chance of success on appeal.
