Civil Writs and Appeals

In addition to handling litigation matters through trial to final judgment, our trial attorneys are experienced in managing the appellate process.  This process usually involves the preparation and filing of a detailed record of the underlying trial court action together with an extensive written legal argument.  In some cases, the process of seeking appellate court relief requires the filing of a petition seeking extraordinary – or writ - relief.  A lawyer that has handled both appeals and writ proceedings is of great value when seeking to set aside a judgment or defend it from attack. Our trial attorneys have successfully handled appeals and writ proceedings in state and federal courts of appeal.

We are capable and efficient in guiding our clients through the appellate process from the outset, or working with existing trial counsel to spot and preserve issues for a successful appeal.  We thoughtfully evaluate the merits of each potential appeal or writ, thoroughly prepare the matter and see it through to completion.  We provide our clients with advice and counsel regarding:

  • Federal and State Appeals
  • Federal and State Writ Proceedings
  • Administrative Law Appeals
