A decision from a trial court doesn’t always have to be the final outcome. 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. The rules governing the trial process are very complicated and specific procedures 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. What appellate lawyers bring to the table before judgment is entered is often as important as what they do afterwards. Out team of experienced litigators can help shape litigation strategy, preserve error, prosecute and defend expert witness challenges, prepare and argue the jury charge, and prepare all manner of legal briefing before, during, and after trial.

Whether the matter is administrative, 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. Attorney Patrick Benca guides our team of criminal appellate attorneys. If we can be of assistance, call our appellate lawyers today at 501-954-8000, or submit an inquiry via our contact form.
