Additional Information: 

Steve Hirsch helps clients reframe and develop their cases for success in the federal and state appellate courts. That process can begin long before any appeal is filed, with dispositive trial-court motions and significant motions in limine, or during the post-trial motion phase, when issues are being teed up for appeal.

Mr. Hirsch’s core practice beliefs are that writing matters, that briefs should tell a compelling story, and that framing the issue is critical to success on appeal. He has been recognized by legal-writing expert Bryan Garner as one of the best brief writers in the United States, and has been chosen by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit to teach appellate brief-writing and oral argument. The Court has called on him repeatedly to handle sensitive pro bono matters.

Clients represented by Mr. Hirsch have included American Honda, AT&T Wireless Services, Electronic Arts, Genentech, Google, Hummer Winblad, Intel, Qwest, and many prominent law firms and individuals in civil and criminal cases, as well as smaller businesses, governmental entities, crime victims, immigrants, public-interest organizations seeking amicus assistance, and labor unions.
