Trial And Appellate Advocacy In Professional Liability Defense

Litigation of a medical liability case does not always end in the trial court. Oftentimes, both during the pendency of an action or subsequent to a verdict, issues determined in the trial court will require appellate review. The members of our medical liability group work closely with the firm’s appellate attorneys, who aid in drafting dispositive and other pertinent motions and assist with post-trial procedure. We believe that we gain an advantage by involving an appellate attorney during trial to assist with identifying and preserving appellate issues. The firm’s appellate attorneys have a proven reputation for success, having litigated numerous civil appeals in the Michigan Court of Appeals, the Michigan Supreme Court and the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals.
