Appellate Practice

Some cases do not end with the trial court's ruling. Quite often, appellate review of a trial court or administrative decision is necessary.

We are experienced in handling the appellate needs of our clients. For State Court matters, we are qualified to write briefs and present oral arguments to the Florida Supreme Court, and all of the Florida District Courts of Appeal. For Federal Court matters, we are qualified to write briefs and present oral arguments to the United States Supreme Court and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Our understanding of the appellate process is an advantage to our clients at the trial/hearing level, where it is critical to preserve issues for later review.

An appeal from a final judgment is the most common action in the appellate forum. However, we also handle appeals of non-final orders and original appellate proceedings for parties. In regard to the appeal of certain non-final orders, an early resolution of such issues can preserve valuable rights and assets for the client. In an era where many cases aren't over until the appellate court rules, McKenna, McCausland & Murphy, P.A. provides a high degree of representation from the investigatory pre-litigation stage of a claim through the final ruling on appeal.
