38. Federal Appellate Defense: Complex Litigation

Many lawyers say that they handle “complex litigation”. Really? Do they? Have they actually gotten positive results? Make them show you.

Here at Mackey Law Group, our lawyers don’t just say we handle complex litigation, we do it all the time and we win!  Recently, Pete Mackey and T.R. Smith obtained a federal court jury verdict in the Middle District Court in Tampa, Florida (yes, we actually work and try cases in federal court) for one of our business clients. This trial victory is highlighted in our blog entitled “Federal Court Jury Trial Victory”.

Then, the loser’s Washington D.C. and West Palm Beach big-firm lawyers appealed the Tampa Federal Court verdict to the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit in Atlanta, Georgia. This did not intimidate our lawyers in the slightest; we never missed a beat. Mackey Law Group’s lawyers have litigated in federal court for years and our lawyers have successfully represented many clients in appeals. So, after year of appellate briefs and submissions to the appellate court, on July 18, 2019 the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit affirmed our client’s jury verdict. A copy of the Eleventh Circuit’s entire opinion follows this blog. Opinion Affirming

The lesson to be learned? Don’t settle for anything but the best when choosing litigation counsel. Ask questions and demand answers. Here at Mackey Law Group we are litigators who actually know how to take a complex litigation case through trial, win, and then through the appeal process if necessary. To obtain the best outcome you can, you need to retain the best lawyers you can.
