Appellate litigation requires a different set of skills from those used at the trial level. An attorney’s ability to depose an opposing expert, select a jury, or control the flow of evidence at trial is not a gauge for a persuasive and successful appellate presentation, where research, analysis, and sharp writing are the strengths most often rewarded. With over twenty years of experience in over 300 appeals, Annette Hasapidis can help you defend a success at trial or overturn an adverse ruling at any stage of review in state or federal courts.
By focusing almost exclusively on civil appeals, Annette Hasapidis has developed an impressive record of success on behalf of both appellants and respondents in the Appellate Division of the New York and Connecticut Supreme Courts, the New York and Connecticut Court of Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. Her ability to master the details of a complex trial record, define issues in terms of the correct standard of review, and make a clear and persuasive written presentation of your strongest case can ensure the best possible outcome before any appellate tribunal.
