A decision from a trial court doesn’t have to be a final resolution, and the team of appellate attorneys at McDaniel, Wolff & Benca have the insight and experience to handle appeals of almost any issue arising in the course of complex litigation. Trials are complicated and specific rules must be followed by Arkansas courts before a decision is reached. If a mistake was made by the trial court, you may be able to file an appeal and obtain a reversal of the decision. Filing your appeal is a time-sensitive matter and therefore you must contact an an appellate attorney as soon as possible if you wish to obtain appellate review of a decision rendered by a judge in state or federal court.

Whether the matter is civil or criminal in nature, we regularly handle appeals before the Arkansas Supreme Court, the Arkansas Court of Appeals, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit. Our attorneys have extensive knowledge of past decisions of state and federal appellate courts enabling them to maximize your chances of a successful appeal

Attorneys Scott Richardson and Bart Calhoun  lead our team of civil appellate attorneys. Attorneys Patrick Benca and Jessica Duncan Johnston guide our team of criminal appellate attorneys.
