Appellate

Appellate Lawyers

At Hayes Scott Bonino Ellingson & McLay, LLP, headquartered in Redwood Shores, California, our firm has extensive experience handling appellate matters for business clients throughout the state of California. Because appeals often focus on procedural issues, it is important to have a lawyer who concentrates on California appellate law.

A California Appellate Practice

Our partners average more than twenty years of experience handling appellate matters in federal courts and California state courts. Our attorneys have handled over five hundred appeals, including appeals to the California Supreme Court, the California Court of Appeal, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. In addition, we have attorneys admitted to practice before the US Supreme Court.

Our firm provides clients with an uncommon combination of skilled trial lawyers backed by attorneys who have extensive experience and success handling state and federal appeals. We are committed to working with our clients to help them achieve their legal objective, whether that involves litigation, trial, or appeals.

Our California appellate lawyers understand the difference between preparing a case for trial and preparing for an appeal. Appeals typically involve an in-depth analysis of the law and are largely related to analyzing applications of state and federal law, effectively identifying motions to appeal, and deftly drafting legal briefs that succinctly and clearly explain the client's legal argument.
