An appeal is legal proceeding brought in a higher court to review a decision of a lower court regarding an issue of law.  A litigant or a trial attorney who is considering an appeal, or review of a trial court matter by other means, should contact an experienced appellate attorney as soon as possible. Waiting until the last minute often proves fatal to what would otherwise be a good appeal. Immediate review of critical court file documents is necessary to determine whether an appealable order has been issued by a trial court, and the time limits created by trial court orders and judgments.

     I have handled:

  • Appeals to the Appellate Division of the Superior Court for limited civil cases. These are cases that involve $25,000 or less in controversy.
  • Appeals to the Second District Court of Appeal for unlimited civil cases.  These are cases that involve more that $25,000 or equitable relief.
  • Appellate Settlement Conferences.  Both parties to an appeal have the opportunity to resolve their matter informally, on terms that are sometimes mutually beneficial to both parties.
  • Petitions for a Writ of Supersedeas. This results in a stay of collection and enforcement proceedings in the trial court until the appeal has been decided.
  • Petitions for Writs of Review in the California Supreme Court.
