The lawyers of Huang Ybarra Gelberg & May LLP draw on their experience as advocates to present thoughtful, concise, and often winning arguments on appeal. By credibly describing evidentiary or legal errors made at trial, we have successfully overturned judgments against our clients. At the same time, we are able to present the trial record accurately to persuade appellate judges to uphold favorable decisions.
All of our lawyers have briefed and argued complicated civil and criminal appeals in federal and state courts, including matters involving:
- Business Torts
- Contract Disputes
- Constitutional Law
- Criminal Sentencing Challenges
- Health Care
- RICO Claims
As former clerks for federal trial and appellate judges, we understand that the vast majority of decisions turn on the force of written advocacy. Too often, lawyers take a “kitchen sink” approach to briefing on appeal. However, the weight of an appellate brief is measured not on a scale but by its ability to persuade. A client is best represented on appeal when her attorney conveys her most favorable arguments clearly and credibly.
