Many clients choose Eggleston & Briscoe to handle appeals of trial results, if necessary. Our attorneys write briefs, present oral arguments and submit cases to appellate courts, and have prevailed in a number of appeals. Several of our partners have admission to the United States Supreme Court and/or United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, and many of our attorneys have admission to all Texas appellate courts.

In 2012, partner Bill Eggleston and associate John Michael Raborn successfully handled the appeal of a favorable jury verdict to the Texas Supreme Court based on the “resign to run rule” of the Texas Constitution. The plaintiff there had sued his local County Judge and County Commissioners for improper removal from office. After Eggleston & Briscoe prevailed at trial, the plaintiff appealed and the court of appeals affirmed the judgment of the trial court. Thereafter, plaintiff filed a petition for review in the Supreme Court of Texas and Messrs. Bill Eggleston and John Michael Raborn again prevailed as the Supreme Court of Texas denied plaintiff’s petition for review after reviewing the briefing provided by Eggleston & Briscoe.
