Appellate

Appellate Practice at O’Neill McFadden & Willett LLP begins long before an appeal is filed. Our lawyers help prepare dispositive motions and pretrial motions, help develop appealable issues and preserve those issues, and manage the matter through the conclusion of the appeal. This approach has served our clients well and will also benefit your legal needs.
