  • I highly recommend the Carlyle Appellate Law Firm and words can’t describe my gratitude for their services in my case. Their collective knowledge of appellate courts & law, with actual retired appellate court judges working my case, was instrumental in a big win for me on all counts in a very difficult, convoluted uphill battle case.

  • I always call or recommend The Carlyle Firm whenever I am involved in an appeal. Their keen insights into the appellate process, and their exceptional skills as appellate advocates, provide enormous value to me and my clients.
