Sometimes a case is not over after trial or arbitration has been completed, and an appeal becomes necessary. In such event, Jeppson & Griffin’s attorneys have handled dozens of appeals before the California Supreme Court, California Court of Appeal, and Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Jeppson & Griffin not only handles appeals for its clients in matters where we served as lead trial counsel, but we have been called on to serve as appellate counsel on matters where we did not act as trial counsel. In each case we will carefully review our client’s chances on appeal and, regardless of whether our client is the one taking or defending the appeal, will present our client with our assessment of the chances of success on appeal and whether an attempt at information resolution ought to be pursued. If prosecuting or defending the appeal to obtain a decision from the appellate court is the best course of action, Jeppson & Griffin has a demonstrated track record of success in such situations.
In addition to appeals, Jeppson & Griffin has significant experience in seeking or defending against various writs in the Court of Appeal.
