AppealTech was founded in 1998 by a group of experienced appellate professionals. For over 20 years, we have worked with law firms, government agencies, companies and nonprofit organizations to perfect appeals in the State Appellate Courts, the Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals and the United States Supreme Court.

Today, AppealTech is one of the fastest growing appellate service providers in the industry with locations in New York City, Rochester and Los Angeles.
