Florida Appeals is proud to announce the opening of a new South Florida location in Fort Lauderdale at One Financial Plaza, FL 1000, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33394. Upon being approached by her team member Erin Newell, a Fort Lauderdale resident, firm founder Shannon McLin recognized the benefits of having a South Florida physical location to serve the firm’s clients and trial lawyers.
The Fort Lauderdale office is strategically located an equal distance between the Fourth District Court of Appeal and the Third District Court of Appeal, where fellow Florida Appeals’ lawyer, and Miami resident, Melissa Alagna served as a law clerk.
The firm’s appellate lawyers represent clients in appeals to all five of Florida’s district courts of appeal, the Supreme Court of Florida, the United States Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit Court, and the Supreme Court of the United States. Two of the members of our team are former Judges who are now of counsel to the firm. Together, they bring more than 70 years of experience as legal practitioners, and more than 30 years as trial and appellate judges and have assisted Florida Appeals in appellate matters since its inception. Their participation in mock oral arguments to prepare attorneys for appearance before appellate panels of appellate judges have been especially helpful.
