Appellate work is a bit of an art form in itself, with its own set of unique demands. It combines elements of trial practice with elements of policy development that often have implications beyond the individual case. And as in the art world, there are as many different styles as there are artists (or practitioners).
If you are a busy attorney with an important appeal pending, sometimes you can never have enough help. That’s where I come in.
Federal Court Experience – Thorough Research – Clear Writing
As a former federal law clerk and a seasoned Georgia attorney, I have a strong sense for how judges think and what they look for on appeal. Equally important, I understand the sometimes-arcane rules of appellate procedure – down to the fonts and types of paper that are required for briefs in federal appellate courts.
I offer assistance to fellow lawyers, whether you are working on your first-ever appeal or if you’ve done this many times and just need help with one specific aspect of your case. Because I have deep experience as a federal law clerk and because of my proven research and legal writing, I can help you with:
- Researching the issue(s) you wish to appeal
- Properly framing issues for appellate review
- Writing the appellate brief in whole or in part
- Writing responses and replies to the opposition’s briefs
- Writing and filing post-argument motions
- Explaining and keeping you up-to-date on procedure requirements
- Helping you prepare for oral argument, or handling oral arguments myself
