TRIAL IS OVER.
If you won, now you need to defend your hard won victory when the other party
tries to have the trial judge reverse your success or files an appeal.
If you lost, now you need to look for legal options to over turn the verdict or appeal. This is where we come in.
The appellate process is very different from the trial process.
It requires both a different mind set and a different skill set. It is time for an appellate specialist. After all, would you ask a brain surgeon to operate on your heart? Both brain surgeons and heart surgeons have medical licenses but both have their specific areas of expertise.
Don’t lose your case by choosing the wrong expert.
Advising/representing clients in summary judgment motions and post trial motions.
Prosecuting/defending Extraordinary Petitions.
Providing second opinions on appellate issues.
Full service appellate litigation in Courts of Appeal and Supreme Court; California and Federal jurisdictions.
“My basic principle in working with clients and advising them on litigation decisions is that I tell the clients what they need to hear to make a decision, even if it is not always what they want to hear.”
