At the Law Office of Katherine L. MacKinnon, we have a great deal of expertise in the complexities of appellate procedure. Kate MacKinnon and Nicolet Lyon are dedicated to providing clients with the highest caliber representation in all phases of litigation, including appeals. We not only excel at appealing adverse trial court rulings, but also successfully defending lower court victories on appeal.
Kate is a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association Appellate Practice group. She taught first year legal writing for 3 years and appellate advocacy for 2 years at the University of Minnesota Law School. She is regularly consulted on matters of appellate procedure and practice.
Together, our attorneys have advocated in over 50 cases before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, 11 before the Minnesota Supreme Court, and 3 before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit.
Based in St. Paul, we handle appeals throughout Minnesota.
