Appellate Practice

SWBW handles appeals both administrative and court appeals


Appeals are time sensitive and rule intensive

Litigation does not always end with an administrative agency’s or trial court’s decision or ruling.  Instead, parties are often faced with the question of whether to appeal an adverse decision. The appeal process is different than the process for standard litigation and can involve strict deadlines, complex procedural rules, the filing a notice of appeal, the filing merit briefs, and even oral argument. Depending on status of litigation and the type of matter at issue, there can even be multiple levels of appeal.

We have appellate experience at all levels

At Stubbins, Watson, Bryan & Witucky, we have years of experience in Ohio appellate practice, including local and state administrative agency appeals, state court appeals, and federal court appeals. We have successfully briefed and argued cases at a number of levels, including before the Federal 6th Circuit Court, Ohio’s 5th and 7th Districts Courts, and even the Supreme Court of Ohio. Maybe you just received an adverse decision and want to do something about it. Or, maybe you prevailed but the other side has appealed. In either event, please contact our office to discuss your options. Because appeal deadlines can be very short – typically 30 days or less – time is of the essence. If you do not timely file an appeal, you can be stuck with a legal decision forever. Do not wait! Give us a call at (740) 452-8484, or contact us online.
