Looking for a game-changer?

If you’re here, you’ve already had some kind of contact with the legal system.

Maybe the case is over, and you lost.  Or, you won but the other side isn't ready to admit it. 

Or, maybe you’re an attorney with a pending case who wants to coordinate with an appellate attorney now, to improve your chances of success at trial and on appeal.

I’m glad you visited! We have a lot to talk about.

Look no further.

You don’t have time to waste. Find an appellate attorney — yesterday.

This site should make it easy to decide whether you want to put my talent and experience to work for you. If you already know you don’t want a Vanderbilt-trained federal law clerk who learned from one of the best appellate attorneys in Florida, keep looking. Otherwise, learn more about me and read my work to see whether we’re a good match.

Contact me when you’re ready to go.

Areas of Practice


SUPREME COURT 

The "all the way" in our slogan.  My favorite place to be. I’ll pull out all the stops to get you there.


Habeas corpus

Your last chance to appeal a state conviction.  Incredibly complex procedural rules.  Too important to leave to an amateur.


Federal courts of appeals

High standards and big issues.   Criminal and civil cases.    


TRIAL SUPPORT

Making sure your issue is preserved on appeal.  Drafting and responding to dispositive motions.


state courts of appeals

Your family, your business, your civil rights.  Defend your win or attack theirs.


Self-Help and consulting

Research, ghost-writing, and other services for the do-it-yourselfer who wants a professional opinion.

 

My own experience in both roles suggests that most of the time the trial lawyer is well-advised to bring in another lawyer to handle the appeal.
— Hon. Gary Farmer, Florida Fourth District Court of Appeal
[T]he skills needed for effective appellate advocacy are not always found—indeed, perhaps, are rarely found—in good trial lawyers. . . . [I]t is astonishing how many cases are presented by lawyers who are simply not up to the task.
— HON. LAURENCE H. SILBERMAN, JUDGE, UNITED STATES COURT OF APPEALS FOR THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA CIRCUIT
