Appellate Practice

Bring the advantage of teamwork to every stage of your case.

At Capes Sokol, we litigate appeals and writs in federal and state appellate courts. Our team-oriented approach to appeals cuts across all areas of the firm’s practice, including litigation arising from business, real estate, trust, employment, tax and insurance disputes, as well as criminal and white collar matters.

Our team has acquired a depth and range of experience. We have prepared briefs and argued on many occasions in the state appellate courts, including the Missouri Supreme Court. Likewise, we have represented clients in proceedings in numerous federal circuit courts of appeal, all across the United States.

We also work as a team alongside trial counsel throughout the lifecycle of a case, from the initial meeting between the client and counsel, through pleadings, pre-trial motions, trial and appeal. We assist with strategy, dispositive and evidentiary motions and post-judgment pleadings.

We represent existing firm clients in post-trial and appellate matters, as well as new clients referred to us by their trial counsel.
