    Appellate Law

    Losing at the trial level in criminal court can be devastating. Filing an appeal is a chance to correct significant errors, whether they be procedural or substantive. An appeal process allows losing parties a chance for higher court review, and possible corrections of previous trial court decisions. It is important to note that an appeal is not a retrial of the same case in the higher court. It is more so a reevaluation to find possible legal errors based upon evidence already presented at trial. Due to the complex nature of appeals, it is extremely important to hire an experienced and knowledgeable appellate attorney. Our skilled team specializes in several appeals, detailed below.

    Civil Appeals
    Appellate work, in any case, requires sophisticated legal reasoning performed by a skilled attorney. As attorneys with experience in both trial courts and appeals courts, we are prepared to analyze your case, assemble the required "record on appeal," file all briefs and provide an oral argument. We will not hesitate to tell you if we advise against filing an appeal. Additionally, we can file petitions for writ of mandate to the court of appeals for interim orders that are not appealable.
    Criminal Appeals
    Individuals convicted of a crime have the right to an appeal. Criminal appeals are time-sensitive because sentences in a criminal case often involve incarceration. Spending even one day in custody as a result of a wrongful conviction is a travesty. MLTA Law will do everything possible to prevent unnecessary incarceration time by isolating the most meritorious issues for the appeal and submitting a persuasive brief intended to grab the attention of the appellate court judges.
    Family Law Appeals
    When a decision in family court does not go the way you hoped, it is not just dollars and cents at stake, but oftentimes your ability to spend time with your children and be an ongoing part of their lives. Regardless of the type of decision made by the family court judge, you may have the right and ability to overturn that decision on appeal. MLTA Law represents individuals in appealing family law decisions and will advocate for a fair and just resolution on your family law matters. Appeals are time-sensitive, so please feel free to contact us to get started on your appeal.

    Estate Law

    A simple will or trust used to be enough. However, in recent decades the legal environment has become vastly more complicated. To protect yourself and your heirs from costly probate, tax, and medical treatment mistakes, a comprehensive modern estate plan contains multiple elements that operate together to ensure more security. Our experienced attorneys understand the complexities of estate law and will assist you in establishing your specific needs.

    Tax Planning
    Proper estate tax planning will allow you to transfer as much of your property with as little taxation as possible.
    Will & Trust
    These documents allow you to direct how your property is distributed before death, at death, or afterward.
    Durable Power of Attorney
    Without a durable power of attorney, if you're incapacitated, no one can represent you unless a court appoints a conservator or guardian.
    Matt Tuck is an amazing attorney! He got me less than half the time I was facing. My family and I are so appreciative of his hard work! Very proud to call him my attorney.
