Alexander Appellate Law P.A.



Trial Support.


A statewide appellate firm.

Headquartered in DeLand, Florida, Alexander Appellate Law P.A. is a boutique law firm focusing on appellate services, legal research and writing, and trial support. We offer our services statewide.

Appeals are different.

Appellate practice is unlike any other area of the law. A successful appellate attorney has an in-depth knowledge of procedural and substantive law, sharp research skills, and a powerful and persuasive writing style—all this in addition to a close familiarity with every relevant aspect of the trial. Chances of success on appeal also depend on an attorney’s fluency in oral argument—the ability to persuade judges that the law, and the weight of justice, is on your side.

What we bring to the table.

Alexander Appellate Law P.A. offers you the benefit of practical experience that comes only from working as a staff attorney with esteemed judges inside an appellate court. Working inside a district court of appeal provides a unique perspective into how judges analyze cases, in-depth knowledge of the substantive and procedural rules of appellate law, and an inside look at the mechanics of the appeal process. With Alexander Appellate Law P.A., you benefit from this experience.

Why choose us?

Not only does Alexander Appellate Law P.A. offer the insight gained from working closely with appellate judges, assisting them in their decision-making, and helping them craft their opinions—we do so for a value. Alexander Appellate Law P.A. is a low-overhead firm that practices client-focused staffing, charges fewer expenses than traditional firms, and offers alternative fee arrangements—all of which maximize the value we offer our clients.
