Innovative Solutions to Complex Legal Issues
Wilson & Helms maintains an active appellate litigation practice in North Carolina’s state and federal courts as well as in its administrative agencies. Our firm is amply equipped with the insight, knowledge, and experience to identify, preserve, and unravel complex legal questions. Lead by a preeminent commentator on North Carolina’s civil procedure and supported by a former law clerk to a judge on the North Carolina Court of Appeals, our practitioners possess unique acumen as to the inner workings of the tribunals and the manner in which their decisions are rendered.
Our firm’s appellate advocacy begins while still in the trial court to ensure identification of pertinent issues likely headed for appeal, properly preserving those issues for review, and the selection of those interlocutory appeals suitable for review prior to final judgment in the case. In the appellate courts, we focus on critical research and analysis to pinpoint the seminal authorities and present the case through targeted and compelling advocacy in brief and oral argument. We also maintain an active appellate motion and extraordinary writ practice to address the exigency of matters that require immediate attention. The appellate attorneys of Wilson & Helms are also part of appellate groups and organizations that help contribute to our invaluable comprehension of the North Carolina Rules of Appellate Procedure. As such, we are often called upon to serve as local appellate counsel for out of state clients who are prosecuting or defending appeals in North Carolina, as well as to prepare amicus curiae briefs on behalf of various policy and interest groups.
