Identifying and preserving key appellate issues is an important part of our trial practice - particularly when a case involves novel issues of first impression, where the body of governing caselaw is insufficiently developed to provide the trial court with clear guidance. Our attorneys have successfully litigated appeals in state and federal appellate courts throughout California, the Ninth Circuit, and beyond. We are particularly adept at stepping in to replace or supplement previous counsel whose trial-level results were less favorable than expected. In such cases, we are able to provide our clients with a fresh perspective and objective assessment of the trial court rulings most susceptible to attack, and plot the strategy and mode of presentation most likely to prevail on appeal.
