ABOUT OUR NAME
In Greek mythos, Praxidice was venerated as the goddess of exacting justice. Orphic hymns exalt her as the steward of moral order through casting judgment upon those guilty of violating social norms and conventional rules. The daughter of Zeus and Themis, Praxidice is depicted as the embodiment of virtue and one of the three divine personages of Justice.
THE PEN IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD.
PUBLISHED CASES & APPELLATE HISTORY
Nowhere in the practice of law does this maxim carry more truth than in the art of appellate advocacy. A commonly held myth is that any litigator can handle a matter on appeal. Effective advocacy skills in the trial court, however, do not necessarily transfer to the appellate arena. The appellate process requires specific written and oral advocacy skills, as well as a strong working understanding of the appellate process.
At Praxidice, we have amassed extensive experience and an impressive resume of appellate arguments and victories. The combination of our trial and appellate experience brings a unique and valuable benefit to our clients. Where many law firms have to engage an appellate practitioner to handle any post-trial appeal, we are capable of seamlessly transitioning from one court to the next. The advantages to our clients are significant.
The need for appellate expertise begins in the trial court. At every step of litigation, our attorneys keep in mind the possibility of appellate review. For example, many rulings by the court before judgment may cause prejudice to the client that cannot be corrected without the extraordinary relief of a writ petition.
Carrying this palette of knowledge from trial through appeal allows us to provide a critical continuity of representation to our clients that many other firms cannot provide. We don’t have to reinvent the wheel; we don’t have to relearn a case; we don’t have to bill you for two different attorneys to do the job of one. Whether the client hires us during trial or immediately following as appellate counsel, we have both the experience and expertise required to preserve a hard fought victory or reverse an unfair judgment. On the other hand, our attorneys also have the wisdom to know when a matter might settle favorably on appeal.

Past results afford no guarantee of future results. Every case is different and must be judged on its own merits.
