“You are a very interesting mix of tiger and kindness”
I would like to testify as to the qualifications and expertise of my company’s attorney, who has also become my personal counsel. His approach is direct, honest and committed to his client. With a dedicated work ethic, he tenaciously works in the interest of his client with a take-charge attitude that demonstrates his knowledge, honesty, enthusiasm and caring.
We have been working with John for the last couple of years as a business transaction attorney. He continues to be, and has been, nothing but timely, professional, and knowledgeable in all services rendered for us. He is meticulous and thoughtful in every aspect, and we would highly recommend his services and still continue to build our relationship with him. His alacrity is continually a pleasant surprise.
After looking at several attorneys to handle my case, I selected John. It was the best choice I could have made. He has given me peace of mind and has handled my case with pure professionalism. I would definitely recommend using John to my friends or family if asked.
Texas Appeals Court Attorney
The ideal outcome in trial is for the court to agree with your position and rule accordingly. Unfortunately, despite best efforts, the court may not always make a favorable ruling in your case. When the trial court makes legal or factual errors, an appeal may be the best course of action.
Whether you are seeking to overturn or preserve the ruling of the trial court, rely on John McDuff. The John McDuff law firm will narrow down the issues for appeal, utilizing only those arguments that are most likely to persuade an appellate panel. Appeals are often won or lost in the written brief stage; McDuff will prepare a persuasive brief based on the evidence at hand. If there are oral arguments, you can rely on our law firm to make an effective presentation of the merits of your case.
The Costs and Benefits of an Appeal
If you were not successful in trial and are contemplating an appeal, your lawyer must offer a candid analysis of the potential costs against the potential benefits. With over 20 years of experience representing businesses in civil litigation, John McDuff has a good understanding for whether or not an appeal is likely to be successful. He offers counsel that makes sense from both a business and a legal perspective.
