Murphy & Grantland’s appellate practitioners have extensive experience handling state and federal appeals in a wide range of practice areas. We provide our clients with strategic counseling on complex legal issues by reviewing the record critically, identifying and briefing the legal issues and then presenting an effective oral argument to the panel of appellate judges.
In addition, our appellate team includes several attorneys who previously served as law clerks for judges and justices of both federal and state appellate courts, as well as federal and state trial courts. This valuable experience enables these attorneys to uniquely provide important insight about the internal operating procedures of those courts, how cases are decided, and how to properly preserve the record at the trial level in order to posture a case for a future appeal.
Our lawyers have briefed, appeared, or argued numerous appeals before a variety of courts, including:
- South Carolina Court of Appeals
- South Carolina Supreme Court
- Federal Courts of Appeal in various circuits
- United States Supreme Court
