Civil Appeals Attorneys In Maryland And Washington, D.C.

Achieving success in civil appeals requires a unique skill set that not all attorneys and firms possess. At RaquinMercer LLC, we have a proven ability to navigate the complexities of the appeals process to obtain favorable outcomes for our clients. ‘
The varied experience of our attorneys combines to create a powerful synergy for our clients. Steve Mercer brings more than 20 years of appellate experience to our firm while Isabelle Raquin has established herself as an accomplished oral advocate and trial attorney. This stands in stark contrast to attorneys who lack an understanding of the appeals process or have not experienced the rigors of a trial. We believe that our combination of appellate advocacy and trial advocacy is mutually beneficial, allowing us to craft and deliver strong appellate arguments for our clients.

We have a track record of achieving successful results for individual and business clients alike.
