Benedon & Serlin, LLP specializes in all aspects of civil appellate litigation and substantive trial motions. We appear in both the state and federal appellate and supreme courts. Both founding attorneys have been certified as appellate law specialists by the State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization. Our firm and both founding attorneys are AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell, and both founding attorneys have been Southern California Super Lawyers, in appellate law, from 2004 to the present. In addition, our firm has been recognized for professional achievement in the area of appellate law and in 2019 received a Tier 1 national and regional ranking for its Appellate Practice by U.S. News – Best Lawyers
We have extensive experience in preparing appeals and writs. When contacted by a potential client, we conduct a preliminary evaluation of the matter and determine the likelihood of success on appeal. Should the client elect to proceed, we conduct all necessary research, prepare all required briefs, present oral argument to the court, and seek or oppose further review in the California Supreme Court or the United States Supreme Court. While the matter is pending, we participate in any ongoing settlement negotiations.
Additionally, we assist trial counsel to prepare or oppose substantive trial motions, such as motions for summary judgment, motions in limine, new trial motions, and motions for judgment notwithstanding the verdict. By participating in these earlier stages of litigation, we can help trial counsel preserve issues for appeal, particularly those of first impression or extreme complexity.
