Appellate Law

Providing Exceptional Representation in State and Federal Appellate Courts

Trial court judges carefully evaluate the legal issues in a given case and generally make reasonable decisions based on the applicable law. However, trial court judges are not infallible and occasionally commit errors of law. While litigants have the right to appeal, it is crucial to retain the services of an attorney who can prepare well-reasoned arguments to the appellate court.

His exceptional research and writing skills, detail-oriented approach, and extensive courtroom experience are ideally suited for the work of an appellate lawyer.
