Englander Fischer’s appellate attorneys work closely with the firm’s litigators to ensure that, even as the trial is proceeding, the stage is being set for a successful appeal if necessary. We defend favorable judgments secured by our litigators, as well as seek review of judgments adverse to our clients in both federal and state court. We are also available to handle appeals for clients represented by other counsel in the trial courts. Our appellate attorneys are skilled brief writers and excellent oral advocates with a strong knowledge of the inner workings of the appellate courts. Our appellate team has the experience and know-how to skillfully handle appeals in all of Florida’s five District Courts of Appeal, the Florida Supreme Court, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Our appellate attorneys have experience handling appeals in all types of commercial cases including commercial contract and lease disputes, real property disputes, deficiency judgment actions, and commercial foreclosure cases.
Recent appeals successfully handled by our appellate team include:
- First States Investors 3300, LLC v. Betsy Pheil, et al., securing reversal in a commercial lease case of a trial court order improperly disbursing escalation rent payments to the landlords;
- Daniel LaSalla v. Pools by George of Pinellas County, Inc., securing reversal of an adverse judgment for prevailing party attorney fees and successfully arguing that the trial court did not have subject matter jurisdiction over the action;
- Warren Hickernell, Jr., et al. v. Synovus Bank, et al., upholding on appeal a final judgment in favor of the firm’s client in a complex deficiency proceeding after both sides submitted written briefs and presented oral argument to a hotly divided panel of three appellate judges.
