Appeals, Research and Writing

Cummings, McClorey, Davis & Acho, P.L.C. (CMDA) has a group of highly skilled attorneys who exclusively handle appellate matters. An appeal gives a second chance to a losing party. However, appellate procedures can be complicated, confusing and time consuming. For these reasons, it is crucial that any person considering an appeal must have competent, experienced appellate counsel.

Appellate work is challenging and requires special skills. The experienced attorneys in CMDA’s appellate group have an excellent reputation for success. We have repeatedly won major victories in appellate courts, reversing judgments and overturning past precedent to achieve favorable results for our clients. Our attorneys have had unparalleled success in the public law arena handling cutting edge issues of constitutional and statutory law, including appeals involving governmental immunity, civil rights, FOIA and labor and employment law.

We are licensed in all Michigan appellate courts, United States District Courts, 6th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court. We handle administrative agency appeals, driver’s license appeals, workers’ compensation appeals, social security appeals and liquor license appeals. Because our appellate attorneys focus their practice exclusively on appellate law, they gain increased familiarity with the appellate justices and judges serving on the state and federal courts.
