Klinedinst’s Appellate practice group is equipped to handle the complicated appeal process from start to finish. Chaired by G. Dale Britton, Certified Appellate Specialist, our appellate department not only drafts and manages appeals, but also strategizes and consults during trial to maximize potential options should an appeal become necessary.

Our experienced appellate lawyers can be an invaluable resource to clients, particularly in complex or “bet the company” litigation. As with all matters handled by the firm, our attorneys provide hands-on management of every appellate matter, to ensure the appellate phase becomes a prudent investment in the entire legal case and not merely a compounding of expenses.

Our appellate group handles both federal and state appeals, including appeals before the California and the United States Supreme Courts, and is actively involved in the appellate community. In addition, members of our appellate department handle a wide range of appellate issues involving the following areas of substantive law:

  • Banking and Lender Liability
