Appellate Practice

We are experienced and successful appellate advocates.  We handle appeals in the Washington Supreme Court, all three divisions of the Washington Court of Appeals, the United States Supreme Court, the Circuit Courts of Appeals, and Bankruptcy Appellate panels.  We also regularly handle a broad range of administrative appeals. 

Our appellate work includes cases in which we have been trial counsel and cases in which we are retained specifically for the appeal.  In every case, we distill a complex trial record into the key legal issues that will maximize the chance our clients will prevail.
