Appellate Practice

Frith Anderson + Peake has a broad appellate practice. Our attorneys have successfully handled complex civil and criminal appeals before the Supreme Court of Virginia, the Court of Appeals of Virginia, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. Our attorneys can evaluate whether an appeal is appropriate or help you resist an opposing party’s appeal.

Strong written and oral communication skills are essential to a successful appeal. Many of our attorneys are former law clerks, having clerked for judges on Virginia’s federal and state trial courts and the Supreme Court of Virginia. Our attorneys possess exceptional written and oral advocacy skills developed as law clerks and during years of trial and appellate practice. We are also well versed on the rules and practices of the appellate courts, and we can guide you through the courts’ complex notice, filing, and briefing requirements.

If you are looking to preserve a verdict or overturn an unfavorable decision, our attorneys have the experience and expertise to handle your appeal.
