Appellate Law

At Scofield, Gerard, Pohorelsky, Gallaugher & Landry, our attorneys in Lake Charles have experience in both trial and appellate law matters. We believe that this rounded experience helps our attorneys better prepare records at trial that will stand up on appeal.

Partner Patrick D. Gallaugher Jr. has handled landmark precedent-setting appeals in complex oil and gas disputes, and was managing editor of the Tulane Law Review. Partner Robert E. Landry, formerly a Senior Editor of the Louisiana Law Review, has argued numerous appeals to state and federal appellate courts as well as to the Louisiana Supreme Court.
