Dave was extremely professional but more importantly I was treated as a person not a case. He always returned calls and emails in a very timely manner. I would definitely recommend Dave to help with legal needs! -Jennifer S.

As someone who never had a lawyer, David made everything as simple as possible. He is very easy to communicate with and provides all the answers and support you will ever need. If I ever need a lawyer again, David will be my first choice to contact. -Andrew

I was falsely accused of something and had an order filed against me. Ben represented me during court and successfully had the order dismissed. He also went above and beyond to make sure it would not show up on my record. – Brittany.

Motion to Intervene Appeal


CaseDialysis Clinic, Inc., et al. v. Kevin Medley, et al.

Issue:  Is the denial of a motion to intervene a final order subject to a Rule 3 Appeal as of Right, or a non-final order requiring interlocutory appeal?

Facts:  This case involves a property dispute in which leases were sold to a new party. The buying party filed unlawful entry and detainer actions, and then a motion for summary judgment. The buying party’s predecessor in interest, who was one of the original parties to the lease, filed an intervening complaint. The trial court denied the motion to intervene. The intervening party then filed a Rule 3(a) appeal as of right.

Appellate Decision:  The intermediate court dismissed the appeal on the ground that the appealed order denying intervention was not final. Rather, the intervening party should have filed an interlocutory appeal pursuant to Rules 9 or 10.

Review Granted:  December 7, 2017.

Prediction:  Ben thinks the supreme court will affirm for the reasons stated by the intermediate court. Although there are good reasons to address the denial of a request to intervene before the litigation continues, those can be addressed through the interlocutory appeal procedure.
