What We Do

Appellate Litigation

In an appeal, a higher court reviews the decision of a lower court, generally the trial court or an administrative agency. Attorneys representing clients on appeal must carefully review the entire record, including trial transcripts, evidentiary materials, and motions to determine which grounds, if any, exist as a basis for the appeal. Superlative research, analysis, and writing skills are vital, as the strength of the appeal rests on the brief. However, appellate attorneys must also be skilled oral advocates.

West Huntley Gregory attorney Meredith Quinlivan was a clerk and staff attorney for the Colorado Court of Appeals, and has handled both state and federal appeals throughout her litigation career. Most recently, Ms. Quinlivan took on a national automobile insurance company and successfully argued a bad faith claim in front of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
