Appellate Practice

Tompkins, McGuire’s litigators have appeared before the Appellate Division of the New Jersey Superior Court, the New Jersey Supreme Court, and United States Court of Appeals on behalf of clients seeking the reversal or affirmance of administrative and lower court determinations. The vast majority of our attorneys are litigators, and our appellate practice is a natural extension of our trial-level work.   Two of our partners clerked for the New Jersey Supreme Court.  

Our attorneys are prepared to handle emergent and interlocutory appellate motions, merits appeals, and petitions for certification, both on behalf of party litigants and for amici curiae.   We also assist other attorneys in strategizing appeals, writing briefs and preparing for oral argument.
