Appellate litigation is an entirely different animal. It has its own procedural rules, requires a different skill set, and often involves arguments that are unique to the appellate realm.
For these reasons, hiring an experienced appellate attorney is one of the best decisions you can make.
At Cohn Slater, we handle appeals for our own clients and on referral from other law firms. Our attorneys also provide trial support consultation, including helping to ensure the proper preservation of issues for appeals.
The firm’s appellate law practice is led by Dwight Slater, a Board-Certified Appellate Specialist who has practiced in all five of Florida’s district courts of appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals.
Attorney Slater previously led a state agency’s appellate practice and has served on The Florida Bar’s Appellate Court Rules Committee, including as Chair of the General Practice Subcommittee, Vice-Chair of Family Practice Subcommittee, and on the Administrative Practice Subcommittee and Criminal Practice Subcommittee.
