I have specialized for more than 27 years in civil appeals and writs and complex motions. I have filed briefs and argued cases in all state and federal appellate courts in California, in the United States Supreme Court and several Federal Circuits, including the First, Sixth and Ninth Circuits and the Federal Circuit. These appeals have covered such diverse topics as trademark and other intellectual property, disability rights litigation, patent disputes, real estate, business and contract disputes, insurance coverage and insurance bad faith, California anti-SLAPP law, defamation and other First Amendment issues, banking and securities law, torts, criminal cases and more. In addition, I have extensive trial experience (including two plaintiff’s cases tried to a jury resulting in verdicts larger than $1 million) and offer expertise in writing complex motions, such as motions for summary judgment.
If you need appellate expertise, have questions about appeals or writs, or need a top-notch writer to handle dispositive, “bet the company” motions at the trial level, contact me.
