Often times, both plaintiffs and defendants are dissatisfied with the outcome of their cases at the trial court level. Moreover, parties who are happy with the rulings from their judges or jurors may have to defend against an appeal from the other side. Because appeals tend to be very research intensive and require different skills than standard litigation, you will need an experienced attorney to help you with the process of having the prior decision reversed or upheld.

Talis Abolins is an experienced attorney who focuses on civil appeals. Talis developed experience in this area while he served as an Assistant Attorney General and was one of three attorneys on the Torts Appellate Program, which handled or supervised all appeals involving claims of personal injury or wrongful death arising from State agencies and employees.

Talis has successfully worked on cases at all levels of the state and federal courts, including a civil rights case accepted for review by the United States Supreme Court. In 2005, he authored an amicus brief on behalf of the Attorneys General of Washington and 16 other states involving a civil rights claim against law enforcement. Talis’ appellate experience spans a variety of practice areas, including: personal injury, employment, civil rights, governmental liability, family law, land use and real estate and contracts.
