Welcome to 
Easley Appellate Practice PLLC
Licensed since 1994, EAP has established its appellate practice as a top-rated and award-winning premiere all-Board-Certified appellate law firm.  

EAP is "AV Preeminent" rated (the highest possible for legal ability and ethics) by Martindale-Hubbell, whose ratings cover both legal skills and attorney ethics.

EAP's founder has been recognized with multiple prestigious accolades, including Rue Ratings' Best Attorneys of AmericaExpert Network Distinguished© Lawyer, National Association of Distinguished Counsel Top One Percent, Florida'Family Law "10 Best" by the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys, and the Register of Preeminent Lawyers in the United States. The Florida Bar has certified Easley since 2003 as an "appellate expert" and "appellate specialist", with fewer than 200 certified as such and able to claim that select designation. The Florida Bar also recognized Easley in 2009 for Excellence in the Promotion of Board Certification.  EAP's founder is also the nationally recognized author of the appellate treatise, Successful Federal Appeals in All Circuit Courts: A Practical Guide for Busy Lawyers.  This unique federal appellate treatise 
serves as a primary resource for attorneys handling appeals in federal appellate courts nationwide. 

As one appellate judge put it, "[a]ppellate advocacy is, in essence, a business for legal intellectuals" and "a specialty all to itself." See Plain Talk On Appellate Advocacy, 20 Litigation No. 3 (ABA 1994).​ Our boutique Appellate Practice is long established.  We have briefed and argued hundreds of appeals, in Supreme Courts,  Federal Appellate Courts, all Florida Appellate Courts, and we are admitted in all Federal Appellate Courts (1st through 11th Circuits).​ 

Instead of the law firm standard of one legal research package to find some law, we use four different packages to find the most applicable law and produce powerful, effective work product. We labor to provide the highest quality service, expertise, and value, to help you win.
