About Betsy Kimball

About me

I am the only lawyer in California certified as a specialist in both appellate law and in legal malpractice law by the State Bar of California, Board of Legal Specialization. If you have just lost your case and are trying to decide whether to appeal or to sue your lawyer (or both), you may wish to consult with me.  My practice emphasizes appellate matters, legal malpractice litigation, counseling in legal ethics and liability loss prevention, and consultation in those areas.  I also handle business and civil rights litigation and select personal injury cases. Many of my clients are professionals. Out of respect for their privacy, I do not seek client endorsements, nor do I identify my clients unnecessarily.


For seven years, I served on the Board of Directors of Sacramento Child Advocates, Inc., a non-profit agency whose attorneys and social workers represent abused and neglected children in the dependency system in Sacramento County.  I recently completed my Board service as Chair. See:
