From evaluating the underlying case, to writing the brief, and arguing before court, our team takes appellate work to the next level.

The need for a specialized group dedicated to appellate practice is critical in New York because the state courts permit appeals from interlocutory orders such as those which decide discovery and other pre-trial matters including motions for summary judgment, motions to dismiss, motions to strike or amend pleadings and motions involving third-party practice. At Miller & Leiby, we recognize that appellate practice requires unique skills that involve a blend of analytical ability, knowledge of the law, and writing skills. The Appellate Practice Group advises clients on all aspects of the appeals process. Our attorneys possess the necessary experience to meet the unique challenges of the litigation of appeals. Most importantly, we safeguard our clients’ interests and keep legal costs to a minimum by using the appellate courts to seek review of critical interlocutory orders that can have a serious impact on the trial of cases, their settlement value and the possibilities for transfer of the risk to co-defendants or third-party defendants.

Miller & Leiby has been retained to handle numerous matters at both the State and Administrative appellate levels.

Miller & Leiby also serves as appellate counsel by other law firms.

Jeffrey R. Miller, Esq. has taught a class on appellate practice called Appellate Argument, Panelist in Presentation for Inns of Court.
