Appellate and Advanced Motions

At Bowman and Brooke, we know that cases do not begin on the first day of trial and they do not end when the jury returns a verdict. The Appellate and Advanced Motions Team at Bowman and Brooke can help you at every crucial stage of your litigation.

Before trial, we can assist you and your trial team with motions related to venue, jurisdiction and choice of law; dispositive motions; Daubert challenges; motions in limine; as well as the overall legal strategy for your case. During trial, we assist with all legal arguments directed to the evidence, as well as directed verdict motions and jury instructions so that trial counsel is best positioned to prevail with the jury. All the while, we provide a watchful eye to preserve and position issues for appeal. At all times, our intent is to support, and not second-guess, trial counsel’s strategy. After trial, we know how to combine the research, writing, and oral advocacy skills that determine the outcome of post-verdict motions and appeals.

We pride ourselves on knowing the law and procedure and combining it with the art of persuasive advocacy on your behalf. In this regard, we are well-practiced at condensing a multi-month trial into a concise brief that captures the essence of our position and then being able to describe that perspective to the appellate court in the short time permitted for oral argument.

We can do this because we have handled appeals in civil, administrative and criminal matters on behalf of insureds, businesses and manufacturers in high-risk and bet-the-company situations throughout the country. We have decades of experience and knowledge in handling legal issues relating to product liability, property damage, catastrophic personal injury, premises liability, medical malpractice, employment, worker’s compensation and other tort-related, criminal and statutory claims. We have spent countless hours in the trenches during complex trials to advance legal arguments and have experience working seamlessly with in-house counsel and trial teams from other firms.

CASE RESULTS DEPEND UPON A VARIETY OF FACTORS UNIQUE TO EACH CASE. CASE RESULTS DO NOT GUARANTEE OR PREDICT A SIMILAR RESULT IN ANY FUTURE CASE.
