Bringing the Appeal

Taking it to the next level

Maybe you lost a valuable case in the trial court. Or perhaps things came in your favor, and you want to make sure they stay that way. We can protect your interests in the courts of appeals—and all the way to the Supreme Court.

Our team has experience in a wide range of appellate issues. Our counsel, Matt Hersh, has briefed appeals on questions of constitutional law, copyright law, criminal law, property law, international human rights law, bankruptcy law, and many others. He’s helped turn losses below into victories above—and kept wins in the lower courts from being reversed on review.

Our experience gives us an extensive geographic reach as well. Matt has briefed appeals at nearly every level of court in the country, including the Supreme Court, federal circuit courts and state courts of last resort, and of course to appellate courts here in Arizona. He once even briefed constitutional issues to a federal court in Argentina—in Spanish, no less.

MGM Studios v. Grokster: Two losses below—a unanimous win above.

In the early 2000s, at the dawn of the internet age, America’s major record companies faced an existential threat: leeches who created online distribution systems that allowed anyone with a web connection to trade music for free. The record companies sued two of those companies, but lost at the trial court and the court of appeals. That’s when the record companies hired a new law firm—and they won 9-0 at the Supreme Court. Our counsel Matt Hersh was a part of the briefing team for that case. Let us know what Matt and the rest of our team can do for you.

We invite you to contact us, though doing so does not create an attorney-client relationship. Please do not send any confidential information to us until such time as an attorney-client relationship has been established. Our description of what we believe to be superior technology and how we win cases reflects our typical approach to litigation, which we believe:  (i) gives us a competitive advantage, and (ii) is responsible for any success we have had. But we do not win every case. Other lawyers may have technology or approaches that they believe gives them an advantage. Also, the results that we have obtained in other cases or that are described in our clients’ testimonials do not guarantee, promise, or predict the outcome of your case, which depends on the law, facts, and evidence specific to it.
