WM has experience providing trial support to trial attorneys in complex litigation matters. Preserving the record is of primary importance for success on appeal. The attorneys at WM offer trial support in every area of trial preparation, including the drafting of motions, both pre-trial and post-trial, as well as attending the trial itself. Attorneys nearing trial should consider consulting with an experienced WM appellate attorney to ensure that a potential appeal is addressed in their trial strategy and preparation.
Our attorneys also have a broad range of oral argument experience before the courts of appeal. WM offers oral argument support, affording attorneys an opportunity to prepare their cases for oral argument.
