Appellate Practice Lawyers

Lydecker takes great pride in the superior insurance and appellate services provided by our appellate division.  Our group of specialists offer our insurance clients board certified appellate experience and legal insight as a result of involvement in hundreds of insurance coverage disputes and thousands of appeals.

Lydecker’s appellate division includes partners and associates, each of whom is a seasoned and well-respected appellate attorney and some of whom are Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Appellate Practice. Through their involvement in precedent-setting cases, our appellate attorneys have been involved in creating and shaping Florida law.

At every phase of litigation, the Lydecker appellate division provides our firm’s trial lawyers (and counsel outside the firm) with extensive trial support.  

In addition to handling appeals, appellate attorneys are involved in pre-trial, through trial and every part of post-trial litigation.  This is important for insurance cases because of the careful development and preservation of the appellate record.  Through pretrial motion practice, attendance at trial as appellate counsel, and drafting jury instructions and verdict forms in anticipation of trial, the Lydecker appellate team has all the bases covered.

The coverage and appellate division often assists insurance trial counsel in

  • cases involving complex or novel legal issues, the preparing of legal memoranda
  • preparing post-trial motions
  • the aftermath of trial, appellate evaluations in order to assist our clients in deciding how best to proceed
