Experienced Appellate Attorneys
Klein & Wilson - Orange County, California
Most large law firms have an appellate department, and many small law firms must refer out their appellate work because they do not feel qualified to handle appeals. Klein & Wilson handles its own appeals. Appellate specialists say trial lawyers should not file their own appeals because they cannot be objective about what happened at trial. Klein & Wilson disagrees. An appellate practitioner who picks up the file only after the judgment has been entered is like someone who visits a battlefield after the battle is over. Only those who participated in the battle can understand how the battle was fought and why a case was won or lost at the trial court level.
Klein & Wilson's appellate record speaks for itself. For example, although extraordinary writs are rarely granted in civil cases, and usually fewer than one in twenty writs are issued, Klein & Wilson has had great success in writ practice. Even rarer is reversal of a verdict following trial. Yet, in two different cases, Klein & Wilson successfully reversed trial court decisions entered against Klein & Wilson's clients resulting in directed verdicts by the appellate court in favor of Klein & Wilson's clients. Accordingly, Klein & Wilson is capable of handling a case from the filing of a complaint through trial, through appeal and through the entry of a final, non-appealable order.
