Appellate

An appeal presents a critical point in a case – the point where a firm can secure a hard-fought win at trial and also the point where a firm can undo trial error, saving a client millions of dollars.

Our attorneys have achieved victories of each variety. These victories have followed a number of different procedural postures, from weeks-long trials to summary dispositions. Our attorneys have also successfully argued interlocutory appeals involving issues of class certification, the Federal Arbitration Act, personal jurisdiction, statutes of limitations, and discovery. These successes have made HeplerBroom a logical choice to handle both our own appeals and appeals referred to us by outside trial counsel.

HeplerBroom’s attorneys have appeared before every appellate court in Missouri and Illinois, including the Missouri and Illinois Supreme Courts. The firm’s attorneys have also appeared before the U.S. Courts of Appeals for the Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, and District of Columbia Circuits, as well as the U.S. Supreme Court. This breadth of experience speaks to the trust that the firm’s clients consistently place in our firm’s appellate lawyers.

Our appellate practice encompasses all aspects of an appeal – from briefing to oral argument to seeking transfer or certiorari at the highest available court. Clients have also turned to our appellate lawyers for the filing of amicus briefs, requests for supervisory orders, requests for writs of prohibition or mandamus, and emergency motions or appeals.


 

HeplerBroom LLC COVID-19 Response

HeplerBroom has been diligently working on its response and continuity plan to the COVID-19 pandemic in order to keep the health and safety of our employees, their families, and our clients as our top priority.

To help ensure everyone's continued health and well-being, effective March 17, 2020, all attorneys and staff began working remotely. We continue to assess the situation and will return to our physical offices when appropriate.

To ensure this, the firm has identified essential personnel in each office who will make certain that critical firm functions that cannot be done remotely continue to be handled. We have put in place protocol for those essential personnel to make sure they are keeping healthy per the CDC cleaning and sanitizing recommendations. All teams have back-up personnel and procedures that we will follow to make sure all deadlines are met and clients receive the same great service and work product that we have always been proud to provide.

HeplerBroom's IT department has been working hard to make sure all remote employees are set up with equipment and access from home to limit disruption to our clients. Maintaining security and confidentiality has remained, and will continue to remain, at the forefront of all processes and procedures, at all levels throughout the firm.

The firm has created emergency communication measures to communicate any changes to this plan to employees and are communicating on a regular basis with any and all new resources and helpful information during this uncertain time.

During these fluid and unpredictable times, HeplerBroom will continue its commitment to great service and results for our clients, all while keeping safe and healthy.

Wishing you and your families good health.
