Appellate Law

Bramnick Creed handles appellate law matters for clients in all regional state and federal appellate courts and in virtually every civil practice area.

Appeals differ significantly from trial practice. Appellate practice requires unique skills and an in-depth knowledge of the appellate process. The attorneys of Bramnick Creed have a deep understanding of the appellate courts and what it takes to win on appeal.

Experience counts when it comes to having the best chance of success on appeal. Our attorneys have a track record of success in the appellate courts. We handle appeals in state and federal appellate courts, including the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit; U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit; D.C. Court of Appeals; Maryland Court of Appeals; and Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

Bramnick Creed handles appeals in a wide variety of civil practice areas, including:

  • Administrative Law;
  • Business and Commercial Matters;
  • Construction Litigation;
  • Employment Law;
  • Family Law;
  • Medical Malpractice;
  • Personal Injury;
  • Professional Licensing and Discipline;
  • Real Estate Matters.

Because of our experience and strong reputation in the appellate courts, Bramnick Creed receives referrals from other trial lawyers and firms seeking to overturn an adverse trial court judgment or defend a favorable verdict on appeal. We also co-counsel with other lawyers and firms to help them succeed on appeal. We utilize a variety of fee arrangements to effectively and efficiently litigate appellate cases.
