California Writs and Appeals Lawyer
Jeffrey I. Ehrlich retained to argue $48.1 million products-liability lawsuit
April 2013 – Plaintiff Christopher Trejo took Motrin and developed toxic epidermal necrolysis (TEN), a reaction that produces burn-like injuries to the skin and mucous membranes.
The jury awarded him $48.1 million in compensatory and punitive damages against the makers of Motrin, McNeil-PPC, Inc. and Johnson & Johnson.
The defendants have appealed. Trejo’s appellate counsel has retained Ehrlich to argue the appeal, which is pending in the California Court of Appeal for Second Appellate District.
Why hire The Ehrlich Law Firm for your appeal?
Mr. Ehrlich has briefed and argued hundreds of appeals, in the following courts: The U.S. Supreme Court; the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 9th and 11th Circuits; the California Supreme Court; the Virginia Supreme Court; the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, the Louisiana Court of Appeals, and the California Court of Appeal. In California, Mr. Ehrlich has handled appeals in the appellate courts sitting in San Francisco (First District), Los Angeles (Second District), Sacramento (Third District) San Diego (Fourth District, Div. 1), Riverside (Fourth District, Div. 2), Santa Ana (Fourth District, Div. 3), Ventura (Second District, Div. 6),,, and Fresno (Fifth District) – in sum, every appellate court in the State except for the Sixth District, which sits in San Jose.
Both the California and the federal appellate system dispose of the vast bulk of their civil appeals in unpublished decisions. Fewer than 25% of all appeals decided are decided by published decisions that have precedential value. Mr. Ehrlich has over 55 published appellate decisions in the state and federal courts. Very few appellate lawyers in California have comparable experience with civil appeals.
