Yankwitt LLP Launches Dedicated Appellate Practice

White Plains, NY (July 25, 2022) – Yankwitt LLP, Westchester County’s go-to law firm for high-stakes, bet-the-company litigation, has launched a dedicated appellate practice.

“While the firm has always handled appeals in cases for our existing clients, we have established a dedicated practice group to best serve our current and prospective clients with all appellate matters,” shared Russell Yankwitt, the managing partner.

 Our attorneys are skilled legal writers and persuasive oral advocates – abilities they honed as law clerks to federal circuit and district court judges and former federal prosecutors – and consistently take on our clients’ toughest, high-stakes appeals — and prevail.”

Yankwitt LLP’s appellate team is led by Benjamin Allee, a former Deputy Chief of the United States Attorneys’ Office for the Southern District of New York, White Plains Division and Second Circuit clerk; Ross Morrison, a former Acting and Deputy Appellate Chief of the Civil Division for Southern District of New York; and Dina Hamerman, a former Big Law attorney and Third Circuit clerk, who among them have decades of experience briefing and arguing appeals.

The practice is supported by a roster of senior attorneys with decades of appellate practice who clerked for federal judges and trained as litigators at leading national and New York City law firms.

Additionally, the firm will work with clients on an optimal billing structure – whether flat fee or hourly – for each client and case.
