TOP TO BOTTOM REPRESENTATION

Cetrulo LLP represents clients at the trial level and continues to represent them when appellate issues arise. Our experienced trial attorneys routinely appear before the Federal 1st Circuit, Supreme Judicial Court and Appeals Court of Massachusetts, and other appellate courts in New England and New York. We also frequently appear in the Massachusetts Appeals Court seeking interlocutory relief of a trial court decision on a motion or request for injunctive relief. Additionally, we often advise outside trial lawyers on the likelihood of appellate review success, and handle the brief writing and argument of their case at the appellate level.
