M.C. Sungaila, who has twice been named California Lawyer of the Year and is one of the only Hispanic women ever to lead an appellate practice group at an AmLaw 150 firm, has joined CALG.

With extensive experience in high-stakes, high complexity appeals and writs — she has argued or briefed more than 170 in state, federal, and even international courts — M.C. is the “very first choice for appellate work” for many significant business, municipal, and individual clients, according to Chambers USA.

To support M.C.’s practice, CALG will be opening an office in Newport Beach, California. It will be the firm’s fourth office, and M.C. will be the firm’s 21st appellate attorney.
