Appellate Partner Juli Porto Quoted in Law360 Article


February 7, 2023

Appellate partner Juli Porto was quoted in a recent Law360 article on How Va. Appellate Overhaul Is Shaking Up the Old Dominion (February 7, 2023).

The article discusses how the Commonwealth now allows the Virginia Court of Appeals to hear civil cases and give all litigants the right to an appeal. Previously this was left to the discretion of the Virginia Supreme Court.

Ms. Porto says of the change that it has intensified the “second layer of analysis” for her cases. “"There are times I have decided that even if I can win in the circuit court, it won't prevail at the appeals court so I'm not going to put forth this theory," Porto said.
