Appellate Information for Lawyers

If you’re seeking an experienced appellate counsel for a client, I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss your client’s needs with you.

  • I am an experienced appellate lawyer.  Prior to opening my firm, I was the senior legal advisor to a federal appeals chief judge, where I worked until his retirement.  Prior to this, I served in the United States Air Force, where I was ranked as the #1 Appellate Defense Attorney (out of approximately 1200 officers).  I have personally handled more than 150 appeals, including before the United States Supreme Court, and have advised appellate attorneys and the chief judge on 1000+ additional appeals, including cases ranging from state agency actions to family law to capital murder.
  • I understand the trust and faith required to refer your client.  You worked hard for your client and putting that client’s future into someone else’s hands requires a great deal of confidence.  Feel free to give me a call to discuss your matter confidentially to get a sense of how I handle cases and work with clients. 
  • I welcome the opportunity to work with trial counsel on an as-needed basis.  In addition to being ranked as the best appellate defense counsel in the Air Force, I was also ranked as one of the top 4 trial defense counsel.  Because of my experience, I understand first-hand the trial decisions that must be made and how those decisions can ultimately affect an appeal.  If you are facing an issue at trial you wish to discuss, feel free to give me a call at no cost.

I welcome the opportunity to learn how I can serve your client.  Please give me a call for a free consultation.
