Florida Appeals was founded by Shannon McLin in 2019 after practicing at the firm she founded in 1997, The Carlyle Appellate Law Firm.

The most effective legal teams feature both trial and appellate lawyers, each playing to their respective strengths for the client’s benefit.

We provide comprehensive, high-quality appellate and litigation-support services to trial lawyers and their clients throughout Florida. We believe that success at any level of litigation starts with thorough research, clear and concise writing, and well-reasoned legal analysis. Trial lawyers play an important role as advocates who present the case to the factfinder.

Our appellate lawyers represent clients in appeals in all of Florida’s district courts of appeal, the Supreme Court of Florida, the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit, and the Supreme Court of the United States. We look forward to working with the Solo & Small Firm lawyers throughout Florida.

We are a mutual company, not a commercial company. We’ve built our reputation on vigorously defending yours.®

We were created by The Florida Bar.

Most of Florida’s lawyers’ professional liability insurers are commercial companies that focus on increasing the wealth of their investor stockholders. Our company is owned entirely by our member lawyers. When you buy a Florida Lawyers Mutual policy, you join our family of owners, you vote for the members of our Board, and you enjoy our many Member Benefits (including an extensive library of free CLE, plus a cyber liability endorsement added to your policy at no cost). You have direct communication with Florida-based Underwriters and Claims Specialists who know you, understand your practice, and care about your reputation. We exist to serve our members and the state’s legal community, not the bottom line on the commercial carrier’s financial statement.
