Cooper Levenson was, to our knowledge, the first law firm in New Jersey with a department devoted to appeals and research. This specialization offers every client several advantages:
Appellate-specific experience/Cost effectiveness
Jennifer Barr has more than 20 years of appellate experience. With a speed, perception, and precision honed by thousands of cases, attorneys in this department sort through the most arcane complexities to prepare briefs and set strategies. In many instances, by narrowing the focus and redefining the issues, they are able to extract our clients from a case either on an outright or summary judgment basis.
As this form of litigation has become more common and complex, we have become more expert in thwarting it. Through effective early intervention strategies, we can often prevent class-action certification, thereby avoiding costly and cumbersome litigation.
A data bank of accumulated research, advanced computer-assisted legal research facilities, and years of experience provide our attorneys and clients with inestimable support.
This department regularly practices before state and federal appellate courts, including the NJ Appellate Division, the NJ Supreme Court, the US Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit, and the US Supreme Court.
Cooper Levenson offers a critical edge in dealing with increasingly-complicated litigation.
