Los Angeles, California Civil Appeals Lawyer

Daniel J. Koes is certified as an Appellate Law Specialist by the California Board of Legal Specialization

Federal Court Appeals - California Appellate Lawyer

Los Angeles, California: Appeals in Federal Cases

A primary difference between appeals from federal district court judgments to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and appeals from California Superior Court judgments to the California appellate courts is the right to oral argument. Unlike California's constitution, there is no federal constitutional right to oral argument. Because there is no guarantee to oral argument in federal court, it is wise to retain a skilled appellate attorney to craft the appellate brief so that it will stand out and be persuasive on its own, without the need for oral argument to make its legal and public policy arguments.

Daniel J. Koes is a board-certified California appellate law specialist with a long track record of success in handling civil appeals before the Ninth Circuit who has developed a reputation in the legal community as a thorough, creative and effective appellate attorney in both federal and state appellate courts.
