I believe that concentrating my firm’s practice on one area of law makes us better lawyers with the core objective of obtaining the best results for our clients. Proficiency and expertise in one sphere is developed through the repeated exercise and performance of one activity; writing legal briefs in criminal appeals on a daily basis develops that skill. Writing compelling and persuasive briefs to an appellate courts starts with an intimate knowledge of essential constitutional concepts. Which arguments will work and which will be disregarded, distinguishing between which legal concepts are important and must be raised and which have not been preserved for appellate review, knowing when to raise an argument even though it has not been preserved for appellate review and when to go back to the trial court to create a record so that a legal issue can be argued on appeal: this is all an intimate part of our core knowledge. Because it is only when we identify and focus the appellate court’s attention on a specific issue can we then write powerful and effective briefs. We are a unique law firm because our focus on one area of the law vests us with the knowledge and ability to make the best legal arguments and obtain the best results for your case.More Info
