Appeals are a very specialized area of law. Most attorneys are not equipped or educated on the nuances of appellate practice, nor do they have the time to handle lengthy appeals. Our firm is different. Attorney Jason S. Downs was a highly sought-after appellate author before becoming an attorney. He drafted prevailing appeals for some of Florida’s most respected law firms and his work has led to dozens of published opinions. Mr. Downs has won on appeal in the circuit and district court level, authored amicus briefs to the Florida Supreme Court and has even prevailed on appeal at the Supreme Court of the United States.
The appellate process is a lengthy and costly one and there is usually only a slim chance of prevailing. If you or someone you know has a case for appeal, you want to retain the firm who offers you the absolute best chance of success. Contact Murphy & Downs Law Offices today. (Also bear in mind, there are strict rules governing the time for appeal—time is of the essence!)
