Certified Appellate Practice

Wright, Finlay & Zak, LLP is one of the few mortgage firms with a Certified Appellate Specialist, Jonathan Fink. There are fewer than 350 California Certified Appellate Specialists in California. To achieve this prestigious designation, Jonathan had to pass a thorough examination on his knowledge of appellate issues and had to have handled at least seven oral arguments and prepared a significant number of appellate briefs prior to applying. To maintain his certification, Jonathan is required to take at least 25 additional hours of appellate CLE during each period. If you find yourself involved with an important appeal, either based on the risk or the issues involved, please feel free to reach out to Robert Finlay and Jonathan Fink. Jonathan will be glad to review your appeal, provide a second opinion, or handle the appellate briefing.
