Civil Appeals | Nationwide Practice
At The Law Office of Gregory D. Smith, I have established one of the busiest appellate practices in Tennessee. I have handled more than 800 appeals since founding my firm in 1988. My appellate practice covers a wide range of matters, from the most straightforward to the most complex.
The Difference Between Trial And Appellate Lawyers
Trial litigation is mostly concerned with the finding of facts. When a case shifts from trial court to the appellate level, generally the dispute shifts to questions of law. A successful appellate attorney must have a deep understanding of statutory and regulatory law and be able to present a strong argument on his or her client’s behalf.
Best Of Both Worlds
As a litigator and appellate attorney with more than 30 years of experience, I bring the best of both worlds to each client I represent, along with the personal attention that comes with working with a solo practitioner. From my office in Clarksville, Tennessee, I am admitted to practice in Tennessee state courts and every federal court of appeals in the United States.
Experience can make all the difference when it comes to appeals and complex motions. Whether you are considering an appeal or require a lawyer to defend a lower court decision, contact me for superior service and optimal results. I will work hard to take the uncertainty and risk out of your case.
