Appellate

Johnson, Ayers & Matthews handles a wide range of civil matters in the appellate courts. Our attorneys regularly practice before state and federal appellate courts in Virginia, and we have represented clients in the United States Supreme Court.

We handle appeals arising from all areas of the firm’s practice, including:

tort
contract
consumer
commercial
insurance
railroad
product liability
eminent domain
title insurance
real estate
landlord-tenant
property management
will contests
workers’ compensation cases

Other attorneys who wish to challenge or defend a final decision of a trial court often solicit our assistance on appeal, even though this firm was not involved at trial. In these situations, firm attorneys either provide advice and guidance without appearing of record on the appeal or serve as appellate co-counsel, whichever is desired. We also have filed amicus curiae briefs for non-parties having a vital interest in particular appellate cases.
