NORMAN PINE, a Certified Appellate Law Specialist, State Bar of California, has been recognized with a wide variety of professional honors. He has consistently been named to the Southern California Super Lawyers listing of top appellate law attorneys (as chosen by peers and Law & Politics magazine) since that distinction was first created. Moreover, in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012, he had the special honor of being recognized as one of only a few appellate lawyers in Super Lawyers “Top 100 Attorneys” in Southern California. In 2009, he was honored by The Daily Journal as one of California’s top 10 plaintiffs’ employment lawyers. In 2021, he was a co-recipient of The Daily Journal's California Lawyer Attorneys of the Year award. Experience, and especially creativity, make him highly sought-after to handle appeals involving multi-million dollar stakes.


In 2008, BEVERLY PINE and NORMAN PINE were jointly honored with the California Employment Lawyers Association, Joe Posner Award for their “continuous dedication to the advancement of employee rights.” In 2003, NORMAN PINE was voted “Appellate Lawyer of the Year” by the Consumer Attorneys Association of Los Angeles. BEVERLY PINE was repeatedly nominated for Appellate Lawyer of the Year in 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.


With many years of combined legal experience, NORMAN PINE AND BEVERLY PINE bring to their work superb writing skills and analytical abilities. The Pines are relatively unique among appellate lawyers in that they each have many years of complex business litigation experience against the top firms in the country. Thus, they truly understand all aspects of the litigation process which makes their advice to trial lawyers invaluable even before cases actually reach the appellate stage. Such advice includes development of creative litigation strategies, effective post-trial motions and identification of potential issues for appeal or cross-appeal.
