Appeals

Lawsuits don’t always end after a verdict is rendered; judgments are often subject to appeal. Sumrell Sugg attorneys are experienced with all manner of appeals, from those pending before administrative agencies and bodies to those taken in state and federal appellate courts, including the North Carolina Supreme Court. Firm attorneys are members of the bar of the North Carolina Court of Appeals, the North Carolina Supreme Court, the Fourth Circuit United States Court of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Civil Litigation

While legal strategy and planning is a function of the office and the research library, the courtroom is where the law comes alive. Sumrell Sugg attorneys excel in the courtroom, handling litigation in state and federal courts, and advocating for our clients in their states of origin or wherever our clients may be subject to legal action.

 

The litigation process is often complex, and we continually monitor our cases to keep clients informed and well advised at every stage of the process. Importantly, our attorneys are well known and respected by the judges before whom they regularly appear.

 

In addition, our attorneys have extensive experience in alternative dispute resolution. In fact, two Sumrell Sugg attorneys are certified as mediators. The firm regularly handles arbitration cases, and firm lawyers are often asked by other lawyers to sit in judgment as arbitrators in civil cases.

 

Insurance Defense
 

Sumrell Sugg attorneys have extensive experience in the area of Insurance Defense. Our Insurance Defense practice focuses primarily on the defense of local governments in both potential and filed litigation.  Our attorneys work closely with clients to determine the most worthwhile strategy as they navigate the court system. Sumrell Sugg attorneys have developed a broad knowledge base of issues affecting local governments due to the variety and complexity of litigation cases its attorneys have handled over the years.

We have many years of experience in making sensible, calculated recommendations to our clients regarding the practicality of settlement, alternative dispute resolution and litigation.  Sometimes litigation is unavoidable, and Sumrell Sugg’s Insurance Defense attorneys are prepared to successfully represent our clients throughout all stages of the litigation process.
