Our attorneys have extensive experience successfully briefing and arguing appeals in state and federal courts and before administrative agencies in civil cases. The knowledge and skills our lawyers have gleaned at their trial practice in areas including class actions, employment law, insurance law, business and commercial law, real estate law, construction law, and water law, give us the necessary background and expertise to efficiently and effectively advocate for clients in appellate courts.

We frequently consult with trial attorneys from other firms who anticipate appealing an adverse court ruling or jury verdict, or who expect they may be responding to another party’s appeal. Our attorneys can help ensure that errors are preserved in the trial court for review by an appellate court and assist in preparing post-trial motions, often necessary for a successful appeal. We also often associate with trial counsel in appellate matters.
