Experienced Appellate Law Attorney
I am dedicated to providing clients the highest caliber representation along with personal service. My practice not only excels at appealing adverse trial court rulings, but successfully defending on appeal lower court victories. I do so by keeping abreast of appellate decisions, litigation trends, and ever-changing law.
I have more than 30 years of appellate law experience and trial support. My expertise includes:
-Trial and appellate briefs
-Petitions for writs of certiorari, mandamus, prohibition, habeas corpus
-Motions to vacate
-Motion for post-conviction relief
-Amicus curiae briefs
I have the experience and legal knowledge needed to handle briefing and oral arguments before state and federal appellate courts and trial courts nationwide.
Personal service is one of the hallmarks of my practice. Additionally, no work is "downstreamed" to others. Rather, your case is afforded meticulous and individualized attention.
