Legal Services


Kerr Russell’s appellate practice is highly regarded, and has amassed an impressive record of success, both on behalf of clients who are appealing an unfavorable judgment, and those who are defending a decision after winning in the trial court.

In appellate work, as in all the litigation and dispute resolution services performed by our attorneys, we focus on delivering results in the most efficient and cost-effective manner possible.

Our appellate attorneys are seasoned litigators, who have a wide breadth of substantive legal and industry knowledge, and can quickly evaluate the merits of the case and determine whether it is likely to result in a favorable outcome on appeal. We represent corporations, governmental entities, and individuals in a wide variety of appeals related to a multitude of legal matters. We handle appeals at the Michigan Court of Appeals, Michigan Supreme Court, and federal appeals level.
