EXPERIENCED, PROFESSIONAL, COMPREHENSIVE AND REASONABLY PRICED CIVIL APPELLATE LEGAL SERVICES.

Firm principal Paul Kujawsky has thirty years of experience as an appellate attorney.  He began his career as a staff attorney with the California Court of Appeal, Second Appellate District, where he drafted scores of opinions for the court in all areas of civil and criminal law.  From 1989 to 1994, he was employed by the firm of Wasserman, Comden and Casselman, in Tarzana, California.  There, he drafted and reviewed discovery, performed legal research, prepared motions, and wrote appellate briefs and writ petitions for the firm’s complex insurance defense and government liability cases.

In 1994, Mr. Kujawsky opened his own appellate law practice in Studio City, California.  Since that time, he has focused exclusively in appellate practice, in all areas of civil and criminal law.  Over the years, he has had the opportunity to use his expertise to help many clients and fellow attorneys through the appeals process. Mr. Kujawsky is proud to have written an amicus brief for members of Congress in Zivotofsky v. Clinton, 10-699. [An American citizen born in Jerusalem is entitled to have “Israel” listed as his birthplace in his passport. Congress shares foreign policy management with the President; the President can’t nullify Congressional legislation with a “signing statement.”] The brief helped persuade the U.S. Supreme Court to decide the important Constitutional questions in the case.<!– Mr. Kujawsky is proud to have written an amicus brief for members of Congress in Zivotofsky v.

Cir. 2006) [American citizen born in Jerusalem entitled to have “Israel” listed as his birthplace in his passport; President can’t nullify Congressional legislation with “signing statement”].–>

Best Appeal Attorney
I would like to thank Mr, Kujawsky on helping me win my appeal. Not only is he super friendly, but he also responds to texts and calls immediately. He literally went through the entire case sentence to sentence and made sure to catch the other parties' false accusations. I am beyond thankful to have had him as an attorney. Look no other.
