Appellate Law

Indianapolis Appellate Attorneys

Not every attorney plays the same role. Trial lawyers focus on proving that the facts and law support a ruling in their clients' favor based on the preponderance of evidence. Appellate attorneys seek to persuade the appellate court that the trial court ruling should be affirmed or reversed based on the trial court's evidentiary findings or application of the law. If you are looking to appeal a real estate or business law decision, do not entrust just any attorney to prove an error was made in the trial court.

CLAPP FERRUCCI prevails at the Indiana Supreme Court. Sean Clapp was successful in overturning the trial court and court of appeals in a corporate law issue of first impression under Indiana law. For a link to the Supreme Court opinion, click on:
