Criminal and Civil Appeals Lawyer


The law firm of Ivan K. Mathew, P.C. maintains an active and successful appellate practice. Our attorney is known for crisp and compelling briefs in criminal appeals and civil litigation. We represent corporations, financial institutions, officers and directors, and a broad range of professionals and individuals.

On behalf of clients throughout Arizona and the Southwest United States, we practice in federal and state appellate courts, including the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and the Arizona Court of Appeals. Our numerous appellate victories have included:

  • Appeals of criminal convictions
  • Appeals of civil judgments
  • Appeals of orders
  • Pre-trial appeals — going to the appeals court before a trial begins, to prevent judicial errors from infecting the trial

We welcome case referrals from trial lawyers and provide appellate strategy consulting to other law firms.

The Key to Our Appellate Success

Appeals are rarely won on oral arguments. Ivan Mathew wins on the quality of his written briefs, concisely and effectively presenting evidence to the appellate judges of the specific miscarriage of justice at the trial level. Mr. Mathew has practiced in federal court for 32 years in white collar and financial crimes, and litigates business and civil disputes. He is a former federal prosecutor, a Certified Public Accountant, and holds an advanced law degree (LL.M. in International Business Law) from the prestigious London School of Economics. This background enables him to take complex financial transactions or distinctions of corporate law and distill them down to their essence.

Ivan K. Mathew, P.C. purposely limits its caseload. This provides clients a rapid response and affords our appellate lawyer the luxury of handling appeals in the proper way. Discuss your grounds for appeal directly with Mr. Mathew by calling 602-254-8088.
