Appellate advocacy and post-trial practice are specialized disciplines that require skills different from those involved in trial practice. At Koehler Fitzgerald LLC, we have an extensive appellate practice.

Our attorneys have handled over 200 appeals in both state and federal courts of appeals, and they have appeared and argued several cases before the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Our objective at the post-trial and appellate stage of a case is to provide proven appellate capabilities founded upon a fresh perspective, legal knowledge and the critical judgment necessary of effective appellate counsel. By doing this, we afford our clients the best post-trial and appellate representation possible in federal and state appellate courts.
