How Can Kepple Law Help?

At Kepple Law, we are also skilled at litigating bench trials, jury trials, and appeals appropriately for each situation. Every trial must be handled differently, and we are well-versed in the knowledge required to best litigate in each setting:

  • Bench trials – The judge acts as both finder of fact and ruler on matters of law and procedure. There is no jury present, so your attorney represents you directly to the judge.
  • Jury trials – A jury of community members acts as the finder of fact. Your attorney will present the argument to the jury.
  • Appeals – Litigating appeals is a complicated process, and your representation will require deep knowledge and expertise  in commercial appellate litigation.

If you are facing a legal dispute over a business transaction, we will work to guide and protect you and your business until the matter is resolved.
