Osborn Maledon’s appellate lawyers handle the most important appeals in Arizona.  They have decades of experience handling cases spanning from constitutional law to appeals from jury trials.  They regularly appear before the Ninth Circuit, the Arizona Supreme Court, and the Arizona Court of Appeals, and have substantial experience in the United States Supreme Court.

Our appellate lawyers are recognized as leaders among the appellate bar.  They author the monthly “Appellate Highlights” column in Arizona Attorney magazine and are active in the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers, the Arizona State Bar Appellate Practice Section, and the Arizona Appellate Handbook Committee.

They are also recognized by Chambers and Partners, Benchmark Litigation, Best Lawyers in America, and Super Lawyers as some of the best appellate lawyers in the country.
