Appellate and Supreme Court Litigation

The attorneys at Webster Szanyi have substantial experience handling appeals before state and federal appellate courts, with regular appearances in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals and the Appellate Division of the State of New York.  Our attorneys are also admitted in the United States Supreme Court, have appeared before the New York Court of Appeals, and have clerked for the Appellate Division and United States District Court.  We have successfully defended trial court victories for counties, towns, villages, school districts, police departments, and businesses.  Our attorneys have also obtained reversals because, even trial judges occasionally make mistakes.  We have even been praised by opposing counsel at oral argument for stellar briefing and advocacy, with the admission that we make the appeal look like a “slam dunk.”  We have gained a reputation for briefing complex issues in plain English and delivering compelling arguments on appeal.

I have been very pleased with the capabilities and work product of Webster Szanyi attorneys. For example, Jeremy Colby is a former County Attorney who is highly effective in municipal litigation. The firm was recently retained as special counsel for a highly technical lawsuit. In a few months’ time, Webster Szanyi obtained a successful result for the Town. Jeremy’s diligent response and immediate grasp of the issues makes it a pleasure to work with this firm.
