Appellate Representation

HKD handles appellate matters practice before the Connecticut Supreme Court, Connecticut Appellate Court and the United States Courts of Appeals.

We represent clients both in cases in which we represented a party in the lower court and cases where we have been brought in specifically for our appellate representation. Over the years we have represented business clients, such as the Hartford Whalers Hockey Club, in a variety of civil matters.

The first step in the appeal process is assisting our clients in making a sound business decision about whether to appeal. While the first reaction after a bad decision or verdict is to continue fighting, that is not always the prudent course. We will analyze the case, its particular facts and base our recommendation off of prior appellate opinions.
