Brian Gaddy has extensive experience in briefing and arguing over 30 criminal and civil appeals before the state and federal appellate courts. Brian has personally argued cases before the United States Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit and before the Missouri appellate courts. Brian also has prior experience as co-counsel in several briefs and cases on the merits before the United States Supreme Court.
A criminal or civil appeal requires an in-depth knowledge of the practice and procedures in the various courts of appeals. Brian is familiar with the entire appellate court system. Brian is often engaged to work with trial counsel or serve as co-counsel to another firm on appeal. He is also engaged to take over as lead counsel in many appeals.
Often, clients who have experienced an unfavorable result at trial will seek advice and new representation at the post-trial motion and sentencing stage before an appeal is filed. This approach may be useful as it can provide an opportunity to properly preserve and shape issues that may be important to the appeal.
