Appeals

Experience Matters

When your trial does not result in the desired outcome for either you or the opposition, an appeal usually follows.  Lurie, Zepeda, Schmalz, Hogan & Martin’s attorneys apply over one hundred years of collective experience representing appellants and respondents.  We practice regularly before the California Court of Appeal and have argued before the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and California and Utah Supreme Courts.  Several of our attorneys are licensed to practice before the United States Supreme Court.

Our lawyers were lead counsel or participated in the following precedent-setting, published appellate decisions:

Won jury verdict of $3 million, increased to $4.2 million with interest, in breach of contract action for attorney-client for over 20 years’ legal fees due from his former client.  Jury ruled in  attorney-client’s favor for both breach of contract and professional malpractice. Affirmed on appeal in full in Rufus Von Thulen Rhoades v. William M. Lansdale et al.
