Appellate Law

We handle appeals in state and federal courts, including matters involving personal injury claims, legal malpractice, insurance coverage, construction defects, real property, schools, government agencies and other tort claims.

Our attorneys undertake appeals either working directly with a client or working in association with a trial attorney. While a party believes the trial court has reached the right answer, their adversary may request that the court’s decision be reconsidered and suddenly the client’s success at trial needs to be protected on appeal. On the other hand, an adversary may have convinced a trial court to take a wrong turn and the client’s own case may need review on appeal. In these situations, Luvaas Cobb can help.

Our approach to appellate work is pragmatic. Every appeal must be assessed in a realistic way that considers mediation or alternative dispute resolution. If the best approach is to pursue the appeal, we will not hesitate to resolve the matter before the Oregon Court of Appeals, the Oregon Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, or the United States Supreme Court.
