Civil Appeals Attorneys

The attorneys at Olivier & Schreiber LLP have decades of combined experience handling civil appeals and have achieved significant success on behalf of their clients in the appellate courts. Trial lawyers with significant victories often seek us out to defend their judgments on appeal. If a plaintiff has been wronged by a trial court’s ruling, their attorney turns to us to tackle it in the appellate courts.

We have briefed, argued, and won several cases that have led to reported decisions for employees, consumers and victims of discrimination in courts across the country, including the California Supreme Court, the California Court of Appeal, and the United States Circuit Court of Appeals. We are also called upon to write amicus (“friend of the court”) briefs on key legal issues to assist appellate courts in their interpretation of the law.

Founding partner Monique Olivier is an Appellate Specialist certified by the California State Bar Board of Legal Specialization. She was honored in 2016 with a California Lawyer Attorney of the Year (CLAY) Award for her appellate work. Our team of experienced appellate attorneys approaches each case with a fresh perspective and a creative and strategic eye toward success in the appellate courts.

If you are defending a verdict or judgment on appeal, or appealing a lower court ruling against you, an experienced civil appeals attorney can help. Please contact our office for a consultation.
