Our attorneys represent clients in appeals in all of the firm’s practice areas, involving not only cases in which we represented a party in the lower court, but also in cases where clients retain us specifically to handle an appeal. The Firm has been appellate counsel for a wide variety of clients, involving constitutional, statutory, procedural, and common law claims, defenses and issues. Our appellate attorneys draw on decades of experience to preserve and position appellate issues at the trial court level when an appeal is anticipated, and we handle appeals in all California Courts of Appeal, Federal Courts of Appeal, and the U.S. Supreme Court.
It is the Firm’s policy to recognize and promote diversity in its business dealings with clients, staff, and the greater legal community. We are committed to enhancing the opportunities of women, people of color, and others who have been traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession to participate meaningfully in the practice of law and management of the firm. We view our commitment to diversity as an ongoing, important, and worthwhile initiative that is consistent with our being a major law firm in such a culturally diverse region as Los Angeles County.
Our dedication to diversity begins with the law schools at which we recruit, and extends to the hiring of staff and the selection of qualified partners and firm managers to run the day-to-day affairs of the firm. We maintain a strong Equal Employment Policy and are proud of our long history of operating a law practice in which attorneys and staff feel welcomed and appreciated. We intend to continue demonstrating the importance of diversity to the firm by sponsoring continuing education programs devoted to expanding opportunities for women and minorities in the legal field, participating in bar activities that recognize and promote diversity, and engaging in other activities in the community which foster and recognize the importance of diversity in our society.
