Appellate

Appeals are challenging.  They can present traps for attorneys unfamiliar with the appellate process.  And not all good trial lawyers are effective appellate advocates.  That's where GTH's Appellate Advocacy Group comes in.  High level appellate advocacy requires special skills, expertise and experience.  Our appellate attorneys possess those qualities.  When appellate success is critical, parties and their trial counsel turn to Gordon, Thomas, Honeywell.
