Home / Practices / Litigation / Appeals


Orr & Reno’s long record of success before the New Hampshire Supreme Court and the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals is pronounced.  Over the years, our attorneys have argued hundreds of appeals for clients in all areas of the law in which we practice.

Practice Focus

Appeals work is a special and independent form of legal practice. Many trial counsel are unable to marshal the resources and research capabilities necessary to thoroughly examine appellate issues.  For small firms and solo practitioners whose focus is on trial work, we can provide continuity of representation through the appeal process and provide substantial value to their clients.  For our cases, which range from trial court appeals in the state and federal courts to appeals from the decisions of administrative agencies, we provide the highest level of service by some of the most highly regarded appellate attorneys in the state.
