Don't Let A Civil Judgment Be the End of Your Case - Appeal

An adverse judgment in your civil suit does not necessarily mark the end of your case.  Judicial error, legal error, juror misconduct or mistakes of counsel may be grounds to appeal the judgment to the California Court of Appeal or the Federal Court of Appeals.

Issue selection, persuasive writing, and oral advocacy skills are essential attributes of an effective appellate attorney.  Ms. Benedict has the experience you need to evaluate whether or not pursuing an appeal of your civil action would be appropriate.  If an appeal is appropriate, Ms. Benedict will select the best issues to present and advocate on your behalf before the California Court of Appeal or the Federal Court of Appeals.

Representative Civil Matters Ms. Benedict Has Handled On Appeal:
  • Business Disputes
  • Personal Injury claims
  • Professional Negligence
  • Civil Rights Actions
  • Employment Disputes
Criminal Appeals
After a court has convicted and sentenced a person in a criminal case, that individual can appeal the conviction and/or sentence to the Court of Appeal.  On Appeal, the Court reviews the trial proceedings for legal error and determine whether to uphold the trial court judgment or to reverse the trial court’s decision in whole or in part. 

Ms. Benedict has extensive experience advocating on behalf of criminal defendants at the Court of Appeal.  She has represented clients convicted of a wide range of offenses including:

  • DUI
  • Murder
  • Assault
  • Theft/robbery
  • Narcotic Offenses
  • Domestic Violence
  • Sexual Misconduct
