Oil and Gas Appellate
If your case comes to the point of litigation, your matter may need to appear before an appellate court.
This might be the next stage of your matter in the instance that your oil and gas matter ended with an unfavorable ruling. If you are unhappy with the outcome of your oil and gas matter, you may be able to reverse it by filing an appeal against the lower court’s decision. You may also need to appear before an appellate court if you are fighting to uphold a previous ruling that is being challenged.
In either instance, you will need the support of seasoned appellate attorneys like the lawyers of Gray Becker to support you throughout the entire appeals process. When you work with Gray Becker, you can trust that we will:
- Help you ascertain whether or not your case can be appealed
- Provide a thorough analysis of your legal matter
- Explain all possible outcomes from the appeal
- Effectively prove or disprove the presence of a legal error that skewed your outcome, depending on your unique situation
It is particularly important to have an intimate familiarity with the legal aspects of Texas oil and gas law because filing an appeal presents a reinterpretation of the decision rather than holding a retrial.
You can rely on Gray Becker to handle your case once it reaches the appellate level. We have decades of experience in handling oil and gas appeals, including appellate matters pertaining to:
