Our reputation is backed by the success of our firm in appellate courts at both the state and federal level. Our appellate attorneys have served a judicial law clerks or staff attorneys for the Nevada Supreme Court and Nevada district courts. Our appellate lawyers have filed hundreds of briefs in the Nevada Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and other appellate courts. We have also presented hundreds of oral arguments before various appellate courts. A significant area of our practice is committed to representing physicians when judgments are appealed, and we are routinely retained by medical malpractice insurers to defend or challenge trial court judgments in cases tried by firms other than ours.
Our law firm has been recognized by Best Lawyers as some of the best appellate attorneys in the Reno area and we enjoy a Tier 1 Metropolitan ranking with U.S. News and World Report.
As part of our appellate practice, and to maximize the likelihood of success in potential appeals, we are frequently asked to give behind-the-scenes appellate advice on pretrial motions and trial preparation. We also attend trials as appellate advisors and we assist with post-trial matters.
