Seasoned Kansas City, Missouri attorney helps clients with their appeals throughout Missouri and the United States
I have garnered more than 35 years of experience in appellate law but you may still ask, “Is an appellate attorney really necessary?” Choosing the right attorney for an appeals case can be one of the most important decisions a client ever makes. Rather than hear new evidence or retry cases, appellate courts often make their decisions based on whether proper procedure or law was applied during trial. Due to this limited review, issues raised in appeals courts are very different from those raised at trial.
My targeted experience with appellate law, stretching from my background in the United States Supreme Court beginning in 1978 to my admittance to the U.S. Court of Appeals, First Circuit in 2002, has earned me an AV® Preeminent Peer Review Rated by Martindale-Hubbell® listing, the highest recognition possible in the legal industry, for my professionalism and ethics.
Delivering the cogent arguments your appellate case needs
While some attorneys are familiar with appeals and include its practice as one part of their law firm’s services, at my law firm, Dennis Owens, appeals are my practice. As a result of my seasoned and first-hand experience I have developed an intimate knowledge and understanding of both the State and Federal appellate courts in order to successfully prepare convincing and persuasive appeals.
I am also a fellow of the esteemed American Academy of Appellate lawyers, a non-profit organization composed of less than 400 members. As the 63rd lawyer elected to the Academy, this honor acknowledges my ethical practice of the high standards of appellate law. Additionally in 2010 I was given the distinct honor of being elected to the American Law Institute, a membership limited only to 3,000 law professionals.
As an appellate specialist rest assured that I can give appeals courts a fresh perspective on your case.
