Our aggressive federal appeals attorneys can challenge wrongful convictions and excessive sentences.
The attorneys at Marks & Brooklier been representing clients in white-collar and other federal criminal appeals for over 30 years. The primary difference between appeals from federal district court judgments to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals and appeals from California Superior Court judgments to the California appellate courts is the right to oral argument. Unlike California's constitution, there is no federal constitutional right to oral argument. Because there is no guarantee for an oral argument in federal court, it is important to retain a skilled attorney to craft the brief so that it will stand out and be persuasive on its own, without the need for oral argument to make its legal and public policy arguments. With a reputation in the legal community as a thorough, creative and effective appellate attorney in both federal and state appellate courts, Donald Marks creates persuasive arguments for clients.
