Sometimes a case does not reach a final resolution at the trial level, and it is necessary to take additional steps to preserve a victory or overturn a defeat. Botkin Chiarello Calaf has significant experience with both scenarios. Our lawyers have argued cases in the 5th Circuit and numerous Texas appellate courts. Our attorneys have clerked at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, as well as at the Texas Supreme Court.
We know successful appellate advocacy requires a different skill set than trial litigation. Our attorneys have a well-honed knack for distilling complicated factual and legal issues into compelling appellate arguments. That is why we produce both top-notch briefs and oral appellate advocacy.
Our breadth of experience in the trial court makes us well-suited to argue a wide range of complex legal issues on appeal. Our recent appeals have involved high-stakes contract interpretation, theft of trade secrets, challenges under the Texas anti-SLAPP statute, and the enforcement of arbitration provisions.
