Tulsa, Oklahoma Appellate Attorneys with a National Practice Before State and Federal Courts

Our appellate attorneys have broad experience with interlocutory appeals, appeals from final judgments, and various writs. We have experience at all levels of state and federal appellate courts, including state supreme courts, federal circuit courts of appeal, and the United States Supreme Court. We handle appeals arising from our own cases and also serve as appellate counsel for matters originating at other firms.
