National Federal & Florida representation. Global clientele.
Florida Appellate Practice. Federal Appellate Practice. Our axiom is straightforward. Despite the rapidly changing law, our appellate firm consistently employs five core principles for our clients: be leaders in outstanding service, substantial experience, continued study, commitment to excellence in what we produce and how we work efficiently.
The successful results of our five-core approach speak for themselves.
Most recently, the firm's founder headed the appellate groups with several health care litigation firms representing national clients.
The firm's attorneys know appellate practice. They are board certified appellate specialists by The Florida Bar. Clients entrust their complex and high stakes appeals to EAP PLLC for four fundamental reasons. We are board certified in appellate, highly experienced and innovative specialists, while not yielding to over-confidence. We provide outstanding customer service, with the highest Avvo customer ratings of 10 out of 10, and 5 stars. And we are well-respected, well-known and even feared by some as aggressive, rigorous appellate advocates.
We are a select group of lawyers (less than 200 out of roughly100,000 lawyers in Florida) certified by The Florida Bar as having real appellate expertise.
Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw explained why appellate expertise are so important:
"[T]here is a difference between the skills needed in litigating a case before trial and appellate courts. Trial litigation - focusing on jury trials - requires jury arguments that are generally structured to lead ordinary people to decide something based on compelling emotional arguments. . . . In appellate advocacy, however, the emphasis switches and the attorney must stress the application of law to facts - keeping in mind the appellate court's concern for uniformity of the law and doing justice."
Hon. Leander Shaw, Supreme Court of Florida, quoted in Appellate Specialization and the Art of Appellate Advocacy by J. S. Carroll, 74-June Fla. B.J. 107 (2000) (quoting letter to author).
"Most lawyers. . .are not aware of the practical and doctrinal factors that shape appellate review. They do not realize that a judge approaches the appeal in a way that is very different from a lawyer."
Paul R. Michel, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, Effective Appellate Advocacy 24 No. 4 Litigation 19 (Summer 1998).
