Experienced Colorado Lawyers Handle Federal and State Appeals



Litigating an appeal effectively requires a special set of skills and experience. At Robinson Waters & O’Dorisio, P.C., our Colorado appellate attorneys have handled numerous state and federal actions. From offices in Denver and Telluride, we use seasoned litigators and former appellate law clerks to give clients an advantage no matter what the particular issue might entail. Since 1977, our firm has delivered exceptional advice and advocacy to a diverse group of clients and can develop comprehensive strategies to maximize the likelihood of a favorable result on appeal.



Whether you’re looking to reverse an error that occurred at trial or seeking an affirmation of an existing decision, our experienced litigators assist with a full range of relevant tasks, including:

  • Trial analysis — Even before a trial ends, we can analyze testimony, evidence and rulings to prepare for potential appeal issues. Our background and legal knowledge give us the ability to identify potential appellate grounds that other attorneys miss.
  • Legal research — With more than 30 attorneys, our firm has the resources to conduct thorough research promptly to build a compelling, well-supported argument.
  • Brief writing — No aspect of appellate advocacy is more important than submitting a strong brief. We draft clear, effective documents that deliver coherent explanations of the relevant facts, statutes and legal precedents.
  • Oral argument — Before federal and state panels, our litigators are well prepared to make oral arguments and answer judges’ questions.
