Civil Appellate Law

Assisting Trial Counsel

Through our expertise in the appellate process, we allow trial counsel to focus on what they need to be doing--trying their case to the jury--while we handle all legal motions, including motions for summary judgment, judgments notwithstanding the verdict, and preparing and arguing the jury charge. Let us free you to excel in trial while we are helping you preserve any points of error for appeal.

After trial, we handle all post-trial motions, including motions for new trial, motions to modify the judgment and filing the appeal. This is a critical time to make sure as much error is preserved as possible.

Prior to specializing in appellate law, Ms. Dean engaged in a successful trial practice and as a result, she understands the needs of trial attorneys and what it takes to make you successful at the trial level and on appeal.

Handling the Appeal

We handle all aspects of the appeal in both the state and federal courts, including emergency motions and mandamus actions. We have experience dealing with insurance, business, personal injury and family law appeals. Because Ms. Dean has handled a vast array of legal matters throughout her career, such as complex commercial litigation, corporate buy-outs, employment and business contracts, consumer issues, family law litigation, adoptions, probate, real estate transactions, insurance and personal injury litigation, she is equipped to assist you in any civil appeal.

Ms. Dean has successfully argued in federal and state courts, including the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, on behalf of a major insurance company, corporations, and individuals. At the appellate level, Ms. Dean leads the appeal of a judgment, including preparing briefs, petitions for review and briefs on the merits to the Texas Supreme Court, and presenting oral argument before diverse panels of judges.

Whether you are trial counsel looking for assistance on appeal or a litigant needing to appeal an adverse judgment or preserve a favorable one, we can provide the appellate expertise you need.
