Appeals in State and Federal Courts

stock-Carson-cityMorris Law Group enjoys an excellent reputation for its appellate work. Lawyers at the firm have experience handling appeals and extraordinary writs in a wide range of cases in both state and federal appellate courts. We have the experience, writing ability, and understanding of complicated legal issues and appellate procedures that are necessary to handle even the most complex appeals.

We handle appeals in cases in which the firm served as trial counsel, as well as in cases in which the firm was not involved at the trial level. Our lawyers have extensive appellate experience in both the Nevada Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. We also have handled appeals in a variety of other jurisdictions.

Our recent successes in this area have included successfully defending a summary judgment we obtained for a local large-scale commercial developer against claims of fraud and breach of contract from a competitor (including successfully defending the award of all of our client’s attorney fees in a separate appeal), successfully defending a summary judgment we obtained for multiple pharmaceutical manufacturers in wrongful death or substantial injury cases, and successfully defending an appeal involving an order enforcing an arbitration clause in a condominium purchase and sale agreements, and obtaining a reversal of a summary judgment against a developer client in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.
