Brannock Berman and Seider is the largest firm in Florida specializing in appeals.  Our appellate practice is unmatched in its experience, reputation, and results.


Our firm has a singular focus on appellate work.  We have handled hundreds of appeals and have appeared in the United States Supreme Court; the Fourth, Fifth, Sixth, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Federal United States Circuit Courts of Appeals; the Florida Supreme Court; and every Florida District Court of Appeal.


Our experience includes appeals in virtually every subject area of the law, both civil and criminal.  We regularly handle personal injury, family law, and commercial appeals.  Our clients include individuals, businesses (small and large), municipalities, bankruptcy trustees, and public utilities.

Trial Support

A successful appeal usually comes from building a great trial record. Our attorneys specialize in partnering with trial lawyers to prepare for a win at the appellate level. How do we do it?


  • We help trial attorneys research and analyze legal issues, and we work with trial counsel to write and argue dispositive or significant motions.
  • We routinely appear with trial counsel to address post-trial motions.
  • We ensure that key issues are properly preserved for appeal by drafting jury instructions and by handling motions for directed verdict.


Our work frees up the trial attorney to focus on presenting the case to the jury.

Mediation and Arbitration

We have litigated hundreds of cases and are perfectly positioned to help guide parties to a reasonable resolution—avoiding the time, uncertainty, and expense connected with litigating a dispute in the courtroom.  Our team includes certified mediators who can address disputes at both the trial and appellate levels, as well as commercial arbitrators who have been named to the American Arbitration Association’s National Roster of Arbitrators.

Appeals are all we do.
