State and Federal Appeals

The ability to handle your state or federal appeal is a clear strength of our law firm. For many clients, this is an important consideration in retaining counsel at the outset of the case because they know they will not have to turn to an attorney who does not know their case should it reach the appellate level. For other clients whose cases we have not handled at the trial court level, we can provide a candid and thorough assessment.

Our accomplished lawyer – Joseph L. Hood – has been Texas board certified in civil appellate law for many years, and we strive to be a quality, informed and aggressive resource whenever your case requires:

  • Successfully appealing an adverse judgment against your business in either state or federal court
  • Defending your favorable verdict and preventing reversal on appeal

The right of appeal is a fundamental aspect of our judicial system, and our state and federal appeals cases have spanned our legal practice areas. We have considerable experience in writing the necessary legal briefs, filing and defending appeals involving:

  • Substantial jury verdicts in serious personal injury cases
  • Employment discrimination and wrongful discharge cases
  • Class certification orders
  • Insurance coverage and “bad faith” claims
  • Property rights and water law
  • Family law matters


Many complex civil litigation matters are ultimately resolved in our state and federal appellate courts. At Windle Hood Norton Brittain & Jay, LLP, we have handled many cases originally tried by other lawyers. We have been successful in obtaining reversals of verdicts on appeal. We have also been retained on numerous occasions to protect a client’s verdict and sizeable judgment against such a reversal.

Please contact us if you are seeking an attorney well equipped to handle your state or federal appeal.
