Texas Civil Appeals Law Firm
An Overview of Our Civil Appellate Practice at Bailey & Galyen
When you have worked hard and prepared exhaustively for trial, only to obtain an unfavorable outcome because the trial judge made an error of law, you want to protect your client’s rights by filing an appeal. Or, you worked equally hard and secured a hard-won victory, and your opponent has perfected an appeal. The appellate process, though, is radically different from the trial process. You may not have the time, the experience or the inclination to handle all of the matters necessary to successfully appeal the judgment. That’s where we can help.
At the law offices of Bailey & Galyen, we have successfully represented petitioners and respondents in civil appeals in the state courts in Texas for over 35 years. We built our practice on a strong commitment to communication, responsiveness and accessibility. As attorneys, we understand the importance of your relationship with your client. We will keep you fully informed of all developments in your case, as well as your options moving forward, so that you can protect your client’s interests.

The Services We Offer in Civil Appeals
We represent individuals or businesses in most types of civil appeals, unless the area of law is highly specialized. From our perspective, the area of law is generally not as important as understanding appellate procedure, techniques for effective legal research, ways to write persuasive briefs, and skills in appellate advocacy.
We can work with you at any stage of a trial, even if an appeal is not forthcoming. We can help you preserve or avoid errors of law at critical stages of a trial, and take appropriate measures to ensure that there is an adequate record to support all anticipated appellate arguments. If you want to be the voice for your client in the appellate process, we can participate in “moot court” or simulated oral arguments, providing you with training, coaching and feedback. We advise trial counsel on appropriate internal operating procedures, as well as the practices of appellate courts. We also handle appellate court mediation.
We take appeals at any stages of litigation, whether in the form of interlocutory appeals or pretrial/post-judgment appeals. If you hire us to represent your client in a civil appeal in Texas, we will:
- Take the time to gather all relevant information and assess whether you (or your opponent) have any basis for appeal, as well as your prospects for succeeding on appeal
- Carefully research the law governing any appealable issues
- Prepare and file a compelling and persuasive brief of law
- Be your advocate in oral arguments before the appellate court
