State & Federal Appeals
As one of the largest defense litigation firm in the State, it is logical that the Firm has a strong appellate and dispositive practice component. FSB is proud that it is highly regarded for its bright, articulate cadre of lawyers who understand the fine points of the law and can write and argue persuasively. The Firm’s appellate and dispositive practice group attorneys are admitted to practice and have argued on behalf of our clients in all West Virginia courts including administrative courts, circuit courts and the West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals. Our attorneys have appeared in the federal district courts located in West Virginia, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth and Third Circuits, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Also, FSB attorneys have appeared and presented in Pennsylvania, Ohio and other jurisdictions, as the needs of our clients have required.
FSB attorneys not only appear on behalf of litigants who prosecute or defend an appeal or seek to dispose of a case prior to trial, we have also filed numerous amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) briefs on behalf of clients who want to educate the court on important social policy issues which will be implicated by the Court’s decision in a particular case.
