Appeals

At Travis Law Group our attorneys have experience in a variety of appellate law practice areas. In addition to handling appeals in which our firm participated at the trial court level or before an administrative agency, we also handle appeals of cases tried by attorneys outside the firm. If possible, we involve the trial attorney in the appellate process to save time and money in the preparation of the appellate record and the briefs, and in formulating the strategies for oral argument.

Our attorneys are licensed to practice in all Texas state appeals courts and many federal appeals courts, including the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, which governs appeals from Texas federal courts. In addition to the Fifth Circuit, our lawyers have handled appeals before the Third Circuit, Seventh Circuit, Ninth Circuit, Tenth Circuit, and Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals. Additionally, Mr. Travis has handled appeals before the Texas Supreme Court and Mr. Calhoun has handled appeals before the Texas Supreme Court and the Supreme Court of the United States.
