Many lawsuits do not end after the trial is over. The losing party will often appeal the decision. Sometimes both parties appeal different aspects of the decision.
However, appellate litigation requires different skills and techniques than trial advocacy. The audience is not a jury, but a panel of experienced judges. Thorough research, a broader perspective, and clear, well-reasoned writing is paramount.
Kevin Benson is an experienced appellate practitioner who has personally handled numerous appeals before the Nevada Supreme Court and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. Many of these were appeals of high-profile or complex cases, or cases that raised substantial questions of law that have never been addressed by the courts before. For example, Mr. Benson successfully defended Nevada's unique "None of the above" voting option against various legal challenges.
Even if you won at trial, the appeal can still make or break your case. We provide experienced advocacy at this critical time.

Lawsuits are expensive. Alternative Dispute Resolution means using mediation, arbitration, or some other means of settling a dispute without the expense of litigation.
We can help parties resolve their disputes by acting as an arbitrator or as a neutral third-party to mediate settlement discussions.
