Colorado Supreme Court

You can expect that our attorneys have invested considerable resources into building your case before any court proceedings begin.

Preparing Motions & Briefs

Most of our clients are unaware of just how much work goes into a case before the trial starts. In some instances, cases never proceed to trial or hearing at all. Instead, judges issue orders based solely on written documents called motions or briefs. What this means is that you really only get one shot to make a first impression.

By focusing on legal research and writing, our motions and appellate practice is able to provide even greater value to our clients.

High caseloads mean that judges are expected to review a huge number of written motions every week. In order to make the strongest argument, our attorneys craft motions that are:

  • Well-organized
  • Succinct
  • Informative
  • Persuasive

First, the motion must contain a proper presentation of the facts of the case. In addition, it needs to properly present them alongside an apt analysis of the applicable laws. 

Our Focus on Legal Research & Writing

Presenting your unique case within the larger context of current and applicable laws is where our strengths in legal research and writing come into play. Attorneys Fred A. Dunsing, Lucy H. Deakins, and Joseph W. Galera have spent combined decades focusing on:

Sifting through Information

To begin crafting a motion, your attorney will need to sift through the evidence and other information, which is often a staggering amount. Knowing which facts are relevant and which are not takes a practiced eye and in-depth knowledge of the topics at hand. We strive to work quickly and move your case forward in a timely manner while also being thorough in our approach.

Applying Relevant Case Law

Taking this boiled-down and relevant information and connecting it with relevant case law is the next step in forming a persuasive argument. Our attorneys have a strong capacity for objective and critical analysis. We stay up-to-date on even the slightest changes to current laws and other nuances that could affect our clients' outcomes.

Distilling Written Arguments

Effective attorneys are naturally compelling storytellers. At its essence, a written motion needs to present a compelling narrative. This can make all the difference for your case when it lands before a judge who has been inundated with an especially high workload.

Understanding Appellate Law

Just as cases are established before a trial begins, they often live long after a verdict or judgment is handed down. Appellate law refers to the appeals process in which part or all of the court's decision is challenged. Our attorneys work carefully throughout every stage of investigating and presenting the facts of your case to preserve the very best chances for an appeal, if it becomes necessary.
