​​Appellate Litigation

Appellate Litigation is a specialized area of practice, distinct from trial-court litigation, that requires its own set of skills and experiences.  Drafting effective appellant briefs and persuading appellate judges requires expert legal reasoning and writing skills.  Mr. Scott has litigated state and federal appeals throughout Georgia in cases covering an array of subject areas, including contracts, torts, and constitutional law—and numerous areas in between.  On occasion, Mr. Scott consults with and provides strategic advice to clients on potential appellate issues even before a case reaches the appellate stage.

Business Contract Disputes

Generally, business contracts are entered into with the best of intentions with both parties expecting to benefit from the contract.  But unfortunately, it is all too common that one party does not do what they agreed to do whether because they overpromised and underdelivered, the circumstances changed, or because they intentionally decide to violate the terms.  In any event, expectations have not been met. And in some cases, there may have never been a true understanding of each parties rights and responsibilities under the contract to begin with.  These types of disputes can become difficult, if not impossible, to resolve yourself especially when there has been a deterioration of the business relationship.  For the past 10 years, Mr. Scott has litigated dozens of contract disputes against individuals, businesses and insurers.   To have the best chance of recovering for your breach of contract claim, contact our office today for a consultation by filling out our online form or calling (770) 480-0018.
