Appeals and Litigation Overview

Attorneys in the Appeals and Litigation group at Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. (CMDA) are dedicated to providing clients with superior legal services on a timely, effective, and cost-efficient basis while maintaining the highest standards of professional integrity. We realize that to reach this goal, we need to communicate effectively and immediately.

Appeals are a unique type of litigation involving specialized rules and courts. CMDA's appellate practice encompasses full-time appellate practitioners who specialize in handling litigation in the appellate courts.

Effective appellate representation requires different skills than those needed by litigation attorneys. Unlike many law firm appellate practices, which are made up of lawyers who only occasionally handle appeals, CMDA's appellate practice encompasses full-time appellate practitioners who specialize in handling litigation in the appellate courts.

Our appellate attorneys handle appeals before the United States Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit, Michigan Supreme Court, and Michigan Court of Appeals. In addition, the Appellate Advocacy Group works closely with clients and trial counsel to devise cost-effective litigation strategies, conduct legal research, prepare and argue important pre-trial and post-trial motions, and ensure that issues are preserved for appeal.

Our appellate attorneys are also skilled at preparing and filing amicus (friend of the court) briefs on behalf of clients who are not parties to an appeal, but wish to be heard on an important legal issue. The preparation of these briefs requires not only a keen understanding of the pertinent legal issues, but a working knowledge of the client's business and the particular industry involved.

Lawsuits come in many shapes and sizes. Our attorneys handle many different types of lawsuits, including business/commercial litigation, civil rights litigation, construction litigation, contract dispute litigation, employment litigation, errors and omissions litigation, no-fault litigation, personal injury litigation, and probate litigation.
