Appellate attorneys concentrate their practice on advocating cases before state and federal appellate courts, including state supreme courts and the United States Supreme Court. Appellate attorneys seek to correct errors of trial court judges and persuade appellate courts to overturn lower court decisions. This can be in a civil or a criminal case, after a trial or after a disposition of a motion.
