The Complex Appellate Litigation Group is pleased to announce that Rex Heinke and Robert Roth have become partners. Previously, both were counsel to the firm.

Rex, in CALG’s Los Angeles office, is one of the most accomplished and experienced appellate practitioners in California, and among the best in the nation. He has argued nearly 175 appeals in federal and state courts across the country, and is regularly called on to defend major corporations and high-profile individuals in some of their most hotly contested appellate matters.

Robert, in CALG’s San Francisco office, is one of the leading family law appellate specialists in California. He has decades of experience as an appellate practitioner and more than 25 published (and scores of unpublished) appellate opinions to his name, including two victories in the California Supreme Court.

In addition, Jocelyn Sperling has joined the firm’s San Francisco office as counsel. Jocelyn is a former law clerk to Judge Richard Paez on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, and she also served for several years as a staff attorney on that court. Jocelyn has handled federal and state appeals in private practice for more than a decade.
