Appeals

Seasoned litigators recognize that trial court results are often just the first step in the ultimate resolution of a dispute. At FP&R, our attorneys prepare for success at the trial court level while anticipating the prospect of additional challenges before appellate courts. Our appellate group routinely assists in pretrial motions and preparing proposed jury instructions. In addition to supervising all in-house appeals, our appellate team accepts direct referrals from trial court litigators who need assistance in shepherding their cases through the appellate process.

FP&R’s appellate attorneys appear before multiple state appellate courts, including those sitting in Washington, Oregon, and Alaska. Our team is also licensed to practice before the United States Circuit Courts of Appeal, and the Supreme Court of the United States. In addition and at the request of clients and insurers, we have appeared in numerous administrative appeals, and as appellate counsel pro hac vice in jurisdictions such as Idaho. Our methodical precision and commitment to scholarly research continues to define our appellate practice.
