D. Gray Thomas is Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Appellate Practice and is a legal expert in handling appeals. To obtain this designation, Mr. Thomas was required to meet rigorous standards and requirements of experience, peer review and examination. He is one of only 6 attorneys in the Jacksonville area who are Board Certified in appellate law. Less than 0.2% of the lawyers in Florida hold this certification.
Mr. Thomas handles appeals in a wide variety of cases in both state and federal courts. He represents individuals and organizations in appeals in civil, criminal, family law, worker’s compensation, employment and administrative cases.
The time to appeal a judgment or order is limited, and if you do not meet the deadline, you may lose your right to challenge the outcome forever. Also, since you generally have only one chance to appeal, you should act promptly to have the best possible chance for obtaining a successful outcome.
Gray's successful appeals have resulted in outcomes including:
- New Trials
- Dismissal of cases
- Reversal of judgments
- Reversal of criminal convictions
- Reduced sentences in criminal cases
- Reduced or modified money awards
Hiring a Florida Board Certified Appellate Attorney with the highest level of experience as well as written and oral advocacy skills can help give you the best chance for success in your appeal.
