Successful State and Federal Appellate Lawyers

At Copple, Rockey, McKeever & Schlecht P.C., L.L.O., our firm has significant experience handling state and federal, civil and criminal appeals. Our attorneys are regularly sought after by other lawyers to handle appellate matters in the Nebraska Court of Appeals and the Nebraska Supreme Court, as well as the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit. In addition, we have an attorney admitted to practice before the United States Supreme Court.

Effective Appellate Representation

Representing a client at trial and representing a client on appeal require different skills. Our appellate attorneys understand the appeals process. We recognize that appeals can be won on the legal arguments made in the court brief. Through meticulous research, analysis of court decisions and emerging legal trends, and focused and concise oral arguments, we have amassed a significant record of appellate decisions. Some of our cases include:
