State Appeals


GillespieShields offers the full range of appellate services for state civil appeals. We handle levels of appeals, from appeals of final judgements to the Arizona Courts of Appeal to petitions for review to the Arizona Supreme Court to petitions for writs of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court.

While superb brief writing is key to being an effective appellate advocate, a successful oral argument is an essential part of an appeal. At Reeves Maxwell, our attorneys have the experience and skill necessary to present a compelling oral argument.

Often litigants are unsure if an appeal is worth the time and expense. Our attorneys can review the trial record and the court’s rulings, and advise you of the possible appellate arguments so that you can determine if the possible benefit of an appeal is worth the costs. Once a decision is made to move forward with an appeal, our attorneys have the experience identify the most promising issues to raise, and the skills to present those issues and arguments in a well-crafted appellate brief that will persuade the appellate court to find in your favor.
