Appealling to the Commonwealth Court, what should I do?

If you have reached this page, you likely have some sort of disagreement with an agency of the commonwealth---this can extend from things like a zoning fight to a denial of a professional license to a parole decision.

The Commonwealth Court is an odd beast and few lawyers have any experience taking appeals to it.  You need to carefully choose which lawyer will represent you in front of the Commonwealth Court since the rules of appellate procedure are extremely complex and the failure to carefully follow each and every rule can easily result in dismissal of your case.  In addition, few lawyers have the type of in-depth academic training and careful writing skills needed to pull off an argument in front of an appellate court.

Attorney Bench is different.  His academic credentials include an LL.M. from Trinity College, Dublin where he was valedictorian of his class and doctoral work at the University of Cambridge.  In addition, Andrew served as a law clerk on the Pennsylvania Superior Court and wrote dozens of appellate opinions in both criminal and civil law.  He knows how appellate courts operate, what appellate judges are looking for, and how to craft careful arguments in plain English.
