Appellate Attorney

Employment Appeals Representation in Pennsylvania and New Jersey

Procedural errors, misapplication of the law and other flaws in the civil justice process can result in unfavorable verdicts. While an unfavorable result alone is not a reason for appeal, these types of errors may be cause for appeal. At the Law Office of Patrick Flanigan, we advocate for the rights of employees in employment litigation and appeals. Philadelphia appellate lawyer Patrick Flanigan has a wealth of experience representing the interests of employees in civil trials as well as appellate matters before the United States Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit.

The Law Office of Patrick Flanigan handles employment law appeals on behalf of existing clients, new clients and clients referred by other lawyers who do not regularly handle appellate work. Our firm handles every employment law and appellate case with integrity and honesty. We believe that strong working relationships are the cornerstone of successful client representation, whether representing clients in dispute resolution, civil trial or appeal.

Experienced Chester Lawyer — Appeals Process

The appeals process differentiates substantially from the trial court process. Having an experienced appellate attorney who is familiar with the appeals process as well as the Pennsylvania appellate court system is paramount to succeeding with an employment appeal.

Attorney Flanigan thoroughly analyzes the trial court transcript, identifies trial court errors and potential grounds for appeal. He prepares and files a comprehensive appellate brief, detailing the procedural errors in motions or trial, misapplication of the law, ineffective attorney representation and other factors that lead to an unfavorable and unfair trial outcome.

The Law Office of Patrick Flanigan handles employment appeals involving:

  • Employment discrimination, harassment or retaliation appeals
  • Workers' compensation appeals
  • Social Security Disability (SSDI) appeals
  • Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) appeals
  • Americans with Disability Act (ADA) appeals
  • Wage and Hour Law appeals
  • Union member appeals
  • Other employment law appeals

There are strict timelines for filing appeals. It is critical to consult with an experienced Philadelphia appellate attorney promptly for a thorough case analysis to determine if there are grounds for appeal, and to allow sufficient time to prepare and file your appeal within the required filing deadlines.
