It is not only McGlinchey’s existing clients who depend on the firm’s Appellate Team to handle appeals.
General counsel and litigation counsel in national companies, along with lawyers in other firms, retain our appellate attorneys after they have had other trial lawyers on a case. Among the many successes of the McGlinchey Appellate team are cases involving:
- Commercial transactions
- Constitutional law
- Education litigation
- Labor law
- Legal ethics
- Lending law
- Local governmental zoning
- Property and contractual conflicts
- Real estate and finance
The McGlinchey Appellate Team includes lawyers who have served on state and federal rules committees. Moreover, our lawyers have been recognized by their peers for their appellate skills by being selected as members of appellate organizations including the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, and by serving as officers of appellate bars, including as President of the Bar Association of the Fifth Federal Circuit. In addition, a number of our appellate attorneys are former state and federal judicial law clerks, including those who have clerked in state supreme courts and in the U.S. Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals.
