Key West Appeals Attorneys

After a decision has been made in a case, it may be possible to review the case and pursue an appeal. Horan, Wallace & Higgins, will help our clients understand the appellate law process and the ways in which appeals are handled in Florida state and federal courts.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our lawyers have the legal experience necessary to handle both state and federal appellate matters. Attorney David Paul Horan is one of only a few attorneys in the Florida Keys that has successfully argued a case before the United States Supreme Court. Cara Higgins has experience before both state appellate courts and the 11Th Circuit Court of Appeals.  Their experience provides our clients with highly skilled representation in a wide range of appellate law matters.

Some of the areas in which we handle appeals include:

  • Construction law

  • Admiralty and maritime law
  • Environmental law
  • Spanish Treasure Fleets of 1622, 1715 and 1733
  • Civil rights cases
  • Family law
  • Criminal defense matters

Engaging in a thorough review of the initial case is central to the appellate process. An appellate lawyer at our firm can take the time takes the time to examine the details of your case, including transcripts, trial memoranda, the entire case file, trial court orders, case and statutory laws, and any appellate briefs that were filed. Our review will help us to determine if there are sufficient grounds upon which to file an appeal. We provide clients with a straightforward explanation of their case and the possibilities for obtaining a favorable outcome on appeal.
