Appellate Consulting

Appellate Consulting

A satisfactory resolution to your appeal often requires experienced appellate legal counsel working on your behalf. Our team includes two former appellate judges; Paul Reilly presided for 11 years on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals (2010-2022) and 7 years in the Waukesha County Circuit court (2003-2010), Jeff Davis presided on the Wisconsin Court of Appeals from 2019-2021, and prior to that handled numerous appeals throughout the United States in his 30+ years at Quarles & Brady.  Kathy Nusslock has litigated appeals in State and Federal courts in her 30+ year legal career.

Appeals are unlike other forms of litigation as the issues and arguments are limited by the record made in the trial court.  Effective appellate advocacy begins at the trial court level and depending upon your needs we are available to consult with you during the trial stage of your case.  Appellate success is dependent upon the correct selection of issues and their presentation in a clear, concise and easily understood manner both at the briefing and oral argument stages.  We are also available to serve organizations who wish to participate as amicus curiae.
