Led by Managing Shareholder Trey Hendershot, a nationally recognized Trial Attorney who has argued before multiple State Court of Appeals and the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals, our team leverages an interdisciplinary approach in helping plaintiffs and defendants, appellants and appellees, and trial counsel reconcile the two largest differences between trial and appeal: the audience and the subject matter. As Trey Hendershot notes:
“At trial the audience is a jury, and trial lawyers seek to persuade jurors that an operative set of facts did or did not occur. When there’s potential for appeal, one audience member is often overlooked: the judge. Appellate lawyers help persuade judges, both at trial and in appellate courts, that the law requires – or should require – a favorable outcome for the client.”
With their attention to the law as subject matter and the judge as part of the audience, appellate lawyers bring a different approach and depth of experience to legal teams. At HC, we do just that for clients with matters concerning:
- Civil Appeals
- Business Litigation Appeals
- Health Care and Medical Law Appeals
- Professional Licensing / Medical License Appeals
- OSHA Law Appeals
