California Appellate Attorney

Los Angeles, California: State Court Appeals

Unlike the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, the California Court of Appeal and California Supreme Court hear oral argument in every appeal. The practical effect of the right to oral argument on appeals from California state court judgments is that an effective appellate attorney must skillfully advocate both in writing and orally. Although the appellate brief filed in the California appellate court must be persuasive in its own right, the attorney handling the appeal must ensure that the appellate brief works in conjunction with oral argument to present the full picture of the case to the California appellate court justices who decide the case.

In re Marriage of Harris provides an example of the importance of oral argument because the Riverside Court of Appeal (the only California appellate court that issues tentative opinions) revised its tentative opinion and issued a favorable decision in favor of Koes' client after his oral argument.
