Webb Daniel Friedlander is a national appellate boutique founded by attorneys with a passion for problem solving. Our talent is distilling complex issues into simple concepts and finding just the right words to convey a winning message, whether written or spoken. We are collaborators who love working with each other, our clients, and other firms.

Lawyer’s Lawyers

Early in her career, managing partner Laurie Webb Daniel was dubbed “the law person” by her trial lawyer colleagues at Webb & Daniel, a predecessor firm. Her drive to exhaustively research each case—not just to support a few points but to master a given area of law—remains a cornerstone of the culture at Webb Daniel Friedlander.

With decades of combined experience writing briefs and arguing before numerous state and federal appellate courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, our team understands the intricacies of the appellate advocacy, procedural rules, and courts. As appellate specialists, we are generalists who become experts in the law for each case we handle.

Collaborative Spirit

The lawyers of Webb Daniel Friedlander previously worked at prominent national firms but chose to band together in a smaller setting to be able to serve our clients more efficiently and enjoy a practice that corresponds to the appellate skill set—that of “the lawyer’s lawyer.” While each of our attorneys is highly qualified individually, our close and forthright working relationship gives us fresh perspectives and magnifies the superiority of our products.

Appellate Practice

We have a proven track record for turning around nuclear verdicts, significantly reducing damages against clients in cases with disproportionate levels of negligence and liability. Our successful appeals include business torts, products liability and other high-exposure personal injury cases, government contracting appeals, white collar defense, civil rights violations and, environmental litigation. We may also fill the role of the appellate lawyer on a trial team, offering fast-paced legal analysis, arguing motions, and preserving error. Indeed, our clients frequently view us as trusted advisors even before litigation erupts.

Broader Commitments

At Webb Daniel Friedlander, we are committed to fostering professionalism and excellence in appellate advocacy and lending our expertise to larger causes. As founding chair of the Appellate Practice Section of the State Bar of Georgia, Laurie Webb Daniel has raised the profile of appellate law and attracted the interest and participation of attorneys and judges from all sectors. Our attorneys are members of and serve or have served in leadership positions in the American Bar Association, including the Standing Committee on Amicus Curiae Brief, the Executive Committee of the Council of Appellate Lawyers, and the Appellate Advocacy Committee of the Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.

Pro bono work is an important part of our ethic. We regularly provide free appellate representation to clients in need of greater equity in the legal system, particularly those from poor and vulnerable communities. Our activities include briefing and arguing significant cases in state and federal appellate courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court, and providing support services to public interest lawyers, for example, by being a resource for moot courts to prepare for oral arguments.
