Appellate

Appellate

A civil case is not always over after the judge makes a “final” ruling or a jury returns a verdict. Some cases proceed beyond the trial court to the court of appeal. In California, that means review by one of the state Courts of Appeal or by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in the federal system. Further review by the California Supreme Court or the United States Supreme Court sometimes occurs.

An appeal, whether as the appealing or responding party, should never be a rehash of the arguments made in the trial court. Experienced appellate counsel should be retained to review the record and determine what standard of review will apply and what arguments are most likely to succeed. Knowledge of appellate rules and procedure and the ability to convey complex arguments in a persuasive fashion are critical.

At DFISL, we have briefed and argued dozens of cases before the state and federal appellate courts. We have successfully pursued and defended a variety of appeals involving insurance, tort, employment and business issues. If you have a need for appellate counsel and would like to learn more about what we can offer, contact Mark Israel or Scott Brooks.
