Oklahoma City Appellate Attorney
Experienced in Handling Appeals in Appellate Court
At Owens Law Office, PC, we know that people want to move on from a legal challenge or dispute as quickly as possible and get a trial victory or favorable settlement.
In some cases, however, it is necessary to appeal a bad ruling — or the other party appeals from a case that you’ve won.
Appeals cases are very different from trial cases, and getting a positive outcome on appeal requires a lawyer with years of experience and knowledge of how the appeals process works.
Attorney Phillip P. Owens II has built an impressive appeals record over more than 20 years in practice. He has handled more than 80 appeals over his career and written many appellate briefs in Oklahoma and federal appellate courts. With his strong background in writing appellate briefs, knowing procedural rules and correctly preparing the necessary paperwork, he positions our clients for a positive outcome when a trial decision is appealed.
Types of Appeals
We represent clients in appeals in a wide range of cases, including:
- Car accident cases
- Products liability cases
- Premises liability cases
- Other personal injury cases
- Arbitration appeals
- Termination of parental rights
- Real estate disputes
- Contract disputes
- Divorce and child custody
- Other family law decisions
We can represent you on appeal whether or not we handled your trial court case. Oklahoma City appellate case lawyer Phillip P. Owens II has dedicated his practice to helping Oklahomans with their legal needs whenever they arise, and he can help you, too.
We have represented many clients in appeals, from accident victims who are appealing an unfair decision in a personal injury claim to parents who need to fight termination of parental rights.
