South Carolina Appeal Lawyer

South Carolina Appeal Lawyer

In addition to handling appeals for cases tried by lawyers in the Steinberg Law Firm, Elliotte uses his appellate experience and passion for appellate practice to assist South Carolina trial lawyers with cases on appeal or cases they expect will benefit from having an appellate lawyer involved at the trial level.

Elliotte’s experience and analytical and writing skills make him a strong choice for handling appeals for South Carolina’s trial lawyers. Elliotte began his legal career clerking for Justice Kaye Hearn of the South Carolina Supreme Court and a United States District Court Judge. Prior to that, Elliotte graduated with high honors from Emory Law School where he served as the Executive Articles Editor for the Emory Law Journal. Important to an area like appellate practice where writing skills are the most critical among a lawyer’s skills, Elliotte spent two years honing his writing skills while writing opinions of the South Carolina Supreme Court for Justice Hearn. He also has been published several times including in legal journals and a book and won a writing competition for an article he authored. Following his clerkships, Elliotte worked for a large, multi-state business law firm on trial and appellate litigation before joining the Steinberg Law Firm. Elliotte has argued appeals in front of the South Carolina Supreme Court and the South Carolina Court of Appeals.

Elliotte assists trial lawyers through involvement at the trial level or following a trial or judgment. The arrangements through which Elliotte is involved in a case are tailored for the needs of the particular case including working for a contingency fee or an hourly fee. At the appellate level, Elliotte handles cases all the way from filing the notice of appeal through a final opinion from the jurisdiction’s highest court including all of the motions, record on appeal, briefs, petitions for rehearing, and petitions for certiorari in between. If brought in at the trial level, Elliotte assists by ensuring the most effective legal grounds are put forward, the record for an appeal is complete, and the issues are preserved for appeal.
