Attorneys in Lorance & Thompson’s Appellate Practice Group are experienced in all aspects of appellate practice including analysis and evaluation of potential appellate issues during the pre-trial and trial phase, as well as managing all aspects of interlocutory and post-judgment appeals. Appellate Practice Group attorneys are often directly involved in case management up to and during trial in an effort to assist in the preservation of error with an intense focus on how that error may be perceived by a reviewing court. The attorneys of Lorance & Thompson’s Appellate Practice Group have experience both in the intermediate appellate courts and in the Texas Supreme Court, creating procedural and substantive law. The attorneys of the Appellate Practice Group assist in trials and handle appeals in a variety of practice areas including traditional tort claims, complex commercial issues, interstate cargo matters, medical malpractice and contract claims.
While Lorance & Thompson is dedicated to a strong trial practice, the attorneys of the Appellate Practice Group focus on providing well-reasoned, passionate, and most importantly, supported oral advocacy to both the intermediate appellate courts and the Supreme Court of Texas. To that end, the counsel of the Appellate Practice Group take great pride in providing zealous representation during oral arguments with an ultimate goal of not only achieving the desired result, but strengthening the law to benefit our clients. Lorance & Thompson Appellate Practice Group attorneys work closely with our clients and our trial attorneys to formulate our appellate strategies – often well before the case is ever brought to trial. In addition, the practice group monitors shifts in the law so as to advise our clients as to changes which may effect their case – or their industry.
The attorneys of the Appellate Practice Group work in tandem with the trial attorneys to develop legal theories, prepare motions, preserve the record, or, when necessary, to seek or oppose interlocutory relief. This is fundamentally supported by the collegiate nature of the Firm where the skill sets of one are readily available to all. In fact, all of the attorneys in the Appellate Practice Group are active trial attorneys with experience trying cases to judges and juries as first-chair attorneys.
