Effective persuasion built on strong legal analysis 

Dunn Carney’s appellate attorneys handle appeals throughout the Northwest, including in the Oregon and Washington appellate courts and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. We also represent industry and other interested groups who are not parties to appeals, but who wish to appear as amicus curiae for purposes of having their views represented and considered by the appellate courts.

Appeals are requests for a higher court to review a lower court’s decision. They are argued in different courts, involve different rules and procedures, and frequently entail different levels of analysis. At Dunn Carney, we understand the differences and are skilled at the research, analysis and writing that can persuade the higher court.
