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 is pleased to announce that its physical offices have reopened. While the health and safety of our clients, employees, and families, remain our top priority, HeplerBroom attorneys and staff are returning to our offices on full-time or modified schedules. Our offices are open to visitors and clients with scheduled appointments, with appropriate screening of visitors and social-distancing protocols. HeplerBroom will continue to follow CDC recommendations for cleaning and sanitizing.

We are very proud of the dedicated efforts of our attorneys and staff to provide great service and work product to our clients during the pandemic. This would not have been possible without the incredible support provided by the HeplerBroom IT Department and other essential personnel who supported our personnel and clients from the office locations while the rest of our teams worked remotely.

If you have questions about visiting our offices, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you in person again in the near future.
