Our Attorneys Have A Deep Understanding Of Appellate Law

An effective trial lawyer must paint a picture for a jury and carefully lay out a number of facts. A trial lawyer is particularly skilled in presenting opening and closing arguments. Conversely, an appellate lawyer must present solid legal issues in a written appellate brief and must answer to a panel of appellate judges in oral argument. The required skill set is unique to the appellate practice. Contacting an experienced civil appeals lawyer promptly can have a direct impact on the success of your appeal.

An appeal from a will dispute, a probate dispute or a trust dispute is a civil appeal. Appeals for these types of cases are also an area that we emphasize.

While the Orange County attorneys at the Walker Law Firm provide competent representation through negotiation and litigation of civil and business disputes, our lawyers also possess the experience and aptitude to provide effective representation in civil appeals. We understand the different rules, procedures, and standards in appellate proceedings and have consistently demonstrated our strong appellate ability in complex cases in both state and federal appellate courts.

Civil Appeals MUST be Filed Within 60 Days.

Our appeals experience and reputation is demonstrated through the trust of other law firms — experienced trial lawyers regularly call on us to handle their clients' appeals.

Experienced Appellate Practitioners

TWLF attorneys are experienced appellate practitioners. Success on appeal requires a different set of skills than trial work, and the two settings involve vastly different procedural rules and standards. Indeed, many unfortunate parties have lost appeals merely because their trial attorney did not have sufficient appellate experience to understand these procedural differences. Our attorneys, however, have consistently demonstrated their strong appellate ability - in fact, other attorneys hire TWLF to handle their clients' civil appeals.
