Appellate practice involves different skills and strategic considerations than trial practice. On appeal, the focus shifts from developing and proving facts (through discovery, examining witnesses, and trial) to the legal issues that decide the case. Effective appellate advocacy thus demands a formulation of the issues that is focused on what is important to a panel of appellate judges deciding the case. At Moberg Rathbone Kearns, our attorneys have successfully appealed and defended appeals in all circuits of the State Court of Appeals as well as the Supreme Court of the State of Washington.
