Houston Civil Appeals Lawyers
Appellate Representation in State and Federal Courts
You cannot appeal a court judgment or order merely because you didn’t agree with it. However, if you believe that an unfavorable outcome at trial was due to harmful error, the law firm of Wells & Cuellar, P.C., can explore your possible appeals.
Our appellate practice handles civil appeals in state and federal courts of Texas. We work directly with businesses that were parties in a lawsuit (plaintiff or defendant) to pursue appellate relief, and with trial lawyers who are reluctant to accept the appeal due to time constraints, location or other conflicts.
Houston Civil Appeals Attorneys
We handle appeals arising from our commercial and civil litigation practice such as appealing final judgment in commercial collections or breach of contract cases. We also take on appeals for select clients who were represented by other attorneys at trial. Wells & Cuellar has urged civil appeals before the Texas Courts of Appeals, the Texas Supreme Court and the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, with a number of reported cases. We also handled an appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of the Texas Manufactured Housing Association.
You are in capable hands at Wells & Cuellar, but appeals are expensive and require concrete grounds such as judicial errors of law at the trial level. All members of our firm are appellate attorneys. D. Brent Wells, James Cuellar, Jeffrey Stewart and Adam Swonke can assess the merits of your case and the cost/benefits of proceeding on appeal. Mr. Cuellar was a briefing clerk for a Fifth Circuit appellate judge for two years before he entered private practice, and both he and Mr. Wells are admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.
