Helping Businesses Get Results in Appellate Court
Resolving a business or real estate dispute in court is often an exhausting process. Your matter was taken to court to be resolved and, ideally, that is where the process ends. However, if you think the court made a mistake in their ruling, you may want to take your dispute to the Oregon appellate courts. Or you may have won in the trial court but the other side will not accept the result and has filed an appeal.
At the law office of Jensen & Leiberan, we help businesses throughout the state of Oregon appeal their business dispute cases or defend against such an appeal. With over 60 years of combined experience amongst our attorneys, we have what it takes to challenge a ruling against you by the trial court or to uphold a trial court's ruling in your favor.

Real Estate Appeals and Contract Dispute Appeals
Business disputes are rarely simple matters. There are often numerous aspects that affect the outcome of a case. In order to effectively challenge a ruling, an appellate attorney must be able to write a brief that concisely summarizes every key part of the case. The facts must be stated so that they are compelling and the law must be thoroughly researched and persuasively argued. Your appeal attorney must also be able to present a powerful argument to the appellate courts, standing up to and effectively arguing the judges' often grueling questions.
Our Portland appellate attorney — Margaret H. Leek Leiberan — has a Harvard Law education and over 30 years experience writing compelling briefs and making persuasive oral arguments in the Oregon appellate courts.
The Oregon Court of Appeals affirms many of their cases without opinion.
