Appellate

DPLO believes in representing individuals through the entire litigation process, which sometimes can include bringing or responding to an appeal. In addition, DPLO can associate into a case to assist or handle an appeal or writ proceeding, even when they have not been involved at the trial court level.

Monique Olivier has particular expertise in handling civil appeals and is a Certified Appellate Specialist (State Bar of California Board of Legal Specialization). Monique has briefed, argued, and won several cases that have led to reported decisions for consumers and victims of discrimination in the California Supreme Court, the California Courts of Appeal, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, including Mansourian v. Regents of the Univ. of Calif., 602 F.3d 957 (9th Cir. 2010), a landmark Title IX case eliminating procedural hurdles for individual victims of discrimination, ensuring broad access to Title IX remedies.
