What Does It Mean To File A Petition For A Writ?
When trial judges make nonappealable mistakes, the client’s remedy is to file a petition for a writ, or order, with the appellate court, to require the trial court to change course. Writs are rarely granted, but there are times when it makes sense to file them. Some trial firms farm out all of their appellate work, but Klein & Wilson believes the trial lawyer is best suited to address appellate issues. And Klein & Wilson has had great success in the writ petitions it has filed. See our appellate practice page for a sample of our successes.
