Attorney Referrals in Tustin

Are You a Lawyer Considering an Appellate Referral for Your Client?

At John L. Dodd & Associates, Prof. Corp., most of our cases come to us as referrals from other attorneys like you. If you tried your client’s case and they wish to appeal, rest assured that we will treat them well if you send them our way for additional help.

We only focus on appellate matters, so you can rest assured that the attorney-client relationship you worked hard fostered will be respected by our firm. We will not engage your client in matters or provided legal services unrelated to their appeal.

We are also always willing to work with trial counsel during the course of the appeal. Trial counsel remains an important member of a team with a common goal of achieving the best possible result for the client.

Should you feel more comfortable representing your client throughout their appeal, we also provide ghostwriting services for counsel’s appellate briefs should you wish to benefit from our experience in a reduced capacity.

We understand that you may be wary about sending your client to another attorney for help arguing their appeal, but rest assured that our interest is not to turn your client into ours. We want to provide the best possible appellate representation for your client as much as we know you want them to have it.

You fought hard during the trial, but sometimes the process must move on to the appellate level to ensure your client’s best outcome is still within reach. Consider referring your client to Mr. Dodd, a California State Bar-Certified Appellate Justice, to pick up the fight where you left off.
