Texas Oral Argument Legal Services

Attorneys Helping Trial Lawyers Develop Litigation Strategies

Trial lawyers often know that their cases will have to be won or defended on appeal before they can count them as successes. However, the appeal is only as good as the record of the trial. Without proper objections and motions, there will be nothing to appeal. For this reason, many trial lawyers choose to work with experienced appellate lawyers throughout the trial process to ensure that their cases are ripe for appeal.

All of the attorneys at Hogan & Hogan are Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Attorney Richard Hogan is triple-certified in Civil Appellate Law, Civil Trial Law and Personal Injury Trial Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. With decades of appellate and trial experience, the partner-level attorneys at Hogan & Hogan provide personalized service in a boutique firm setting.

The firm works primarily with trial lawyers, providing services that include:

  • Civil appeals and oral arguments: The firm provides brief-writing and oral argument services in Texas and throughout the United States. It is well-documented that the skills required for effective trial advocacy are vastly different from those required on appeal. The attorneys of Hogan & Hogan use their training and experience to help trial attorneys prepare and draft appellate briefs.
  • Litigation strategy: While a trial lawyer rightfully focuses on obtaining a verdict or judgment for the client, it is essential to make the appropriate objections and develop a record that will position the case for appellate success. Hogan & Hogan provides counsel for trial attorneys from pretrial through post-trial to position their cases for appeal.
  • Mandamus and interlocutory matters: Hogan & Hogan handles mandamus actions and interlocutory matters with the urgency, efficiency and effectiveness they require. Hogan & Hogan handles writs of mandamus to protect clients' interests during the trial process. The firm also challenges jurisdiction, venue and forum, pretrial and post-verdict orders, and a range of other matters throughout the trial process. One of the firm's attorneys, Jim Marrow, served as the chief mandamus staff attorney at the Fourteenth Court of Appeals.

Trial lawyers and in-house counsel can call 713-222-8800 or contact the firm online to discuss appellate matters with an attorney from Hogan & Hogan.
