Baxter & Smith, PC has achieved consistently excellent results in the field of appellate advocacy. We pride ourselves on the impact we have had on the development of law in areas of concern to our insurance and construction clientele. Within the last Five (5) years alone our firm has handled nearly 100 appeals and argued in every New York State Appellate Court, including numerous appearances in the Court of Appeals. We routinely handle appeals involving a wide range of issues including labor law, contractual indemnification, grave injury, product liability, and general negligence. Attorneys from our Appellate Department are frequently invited to lecture before various bar groups and client gatherings regarding recent developments in the law. Likewise, our appeals group enjoys a unique synergy with the firm’s litigators and trial attorneys. The teams work in unison throughout the pre-trial and trial stages proactively confronting issues that are likely to be raised on appeal.
