The attorneys at Yankwitt LLP are skilled appellate lawyers experienced in both state and federal appellate courts. With their sophisticated understanding of the law and appellate procedures, our attorneys are able to critically analyze a trial court record, identify any grounds to appeal an adverse decision and formulate the most effective plan of attack. To date, Yankwitt LLP has prevailed on every appeal the firm has filed, each time obtaining unanimous reversal of the lower court’s decision. This track record has been accomplished largely through our attorneys’ persuasive writing and oral advocacy. Our team has honed these skills in their roles as law clerks to federal circuit court and district court judges and/or as former federal prosecutors.
Our highly credentialed attorneys include a former Assistant United States Attorney who served as Acting and Deputy Appellate Chief of the Civil Division, and a former Assistant United States Attorney who served as Deputy Chief of the White Plains Division. Additionally, all of our senior attorneys clerked for federal judges and were trained as litigators at leading national and New York City law firms.
Whether we are appealing decisions in our own cases or stepping in as appellate counsel, our clients can rest assured that Yankwitt LLP will deliver best-in-class appellate representation. We also work with clients on the optimal billing structure for each appellate engagement, whether through an hourly or flat-fee arrangement.
