Herb Fox Wins More Appellate Victories

In 2020 Herb won seven out of nine appeals, including four reversals of trial court decisions in areas of law as diverse as family law, medical malpractice and property rights.  Two of these reversals resulted in newly published opinions, bringing Herb’s  career total published opinions to 20. The Court of Appeal only publishes cases that present new and important issues of law, and these cases become binding on all trial courts throughout California. The Court of Appeal publishes less than 10% of all cases it decides.
