Sweeney & Sheehan’s knowledgeable appellate attorneys have extensive experience, having handled hundreds of cases in state and federal appellate courts. Clients know they can rely on us to stand ready to navigate through the most complex issues and develop the most persuasive legal arguments for the best chance of success on appeal.

At the trial level, we seamlessly work with the trial teams to identify potential appellate issues that arise during the pretrial and trial phases of a lawsuit. We collaborate with trial counsel in preparing case dispositive motions before trial, in preparing motions to limit the presentation of an opponent’s evidence at trial, motions for directed findings and verdicts, jury instructions, and post-trial motions. Clients often ask our appellate counsel to monitor trials to identify avenues for appeal in the event of an adverse verdict. Our appellate representation is available to clients who were represented in court by other firms as well as our own skilled trial counsel.

We provide the most notable appellate court updates each month to alert our clients on new developments for Pennsylvania and New Jersey. If you would like to subscribe, please email to be added to the monthly email.
