Appellate

In most civil cases, winning or losing in trial court is only half the battle. Whether a trial court grants summary judgment or a jury renders a verdict, there’s a good chance that one of the parties will seek review from an appellate court. Collins Einhorn has built a team of attorneys who focus a significant portion of their work on appeals. Our work also includes consultation at the trial-court level to develop legal strategy, preserve issues for appeal, and mitigate risk.

Attorneys in Collins Einhorn’s Appellate Practice Group have represented clients at the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, Michigan’s Attorney Discipline Board, and the United States Supreme Court. Our appellate work involves a wide range of subjects, including medical malpractice, legal malpractice, insurance coverage, disciplinary matters, commercial litigation, bankruptcy, product liability, and general litigation.

The Appellate Practice Group has developed a reputation for thoughtful advocacy, engaging writing, and scholarly research.

If you have questions about any of our practice areas, we invite you to call us at (248) 355-4141.
