Drew Eckl & Farnham is pleased to announce that Elissa Haynes has been named Chair of the firm's Appellate Team.

September 14, 2020 BY DEF Admin

Drew Eckl & Farnham’s Appellate attorneys simplify and manage the appellate process by identifying and counseling clients on potential appellate issues, before, during, and after trial. When our Appellate Team gets involved at the trial court level, we work closely with trial counsel to develop an overall strategy and to ensure preservation of any errors that may arise. We are also routinely retained after trial to handle an appeal. Our Appellate attorneys possess an intricate knowledge of the law and nuances involved in appellate practice which allows us to draft persuasive briefs and deliver impactful oral arguments. Drew Eckl’s Appellate Team has successfully handled appeals in an array of substantive practice areas. Our knowledge of Georgia’s appellate judges and justices and familiarity with recent appellate decisions provides our team with a distinct advantage and maximizes our clients’ chances of success on appeal. 


Elissa Haynes is a Partner at Drew Eckl & Farnham where she specializes in both trial and appellate practice. Elissa’s trial practice is focused primarily on defending claims involving negligent security, premises liability, personal/catastrophic injuries, wrongful death, and religious institution liability.  

As for her appellate practice, Elissa has argued before the Georgia Supreme Court and Georgia Court of Appeals and was part of the first group of attorneys to argue at the Georgia Supreme Court remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic. Elissa routinely consults on appellate matters and often begins her involvement at the trial court level to perfect the record and maximize chances of an advantageous result in any subsequent appeal. She also serves as Chair of the Georgia Defense Lawyers Association’s Amicus Curiae Committee where she is tasked with reviewing amicus requests from GDLA members as well as authoring and submitting briefs on issues that pose particular significance to the defense bar.
