Appellate work is like solving a puzzle. The puzzle pieces are typically contracts, testimony and other trial evidence, cases, statutes, regulations, and rules. The skilled appellate lawyer will arrange the pieces in a way that achieves the client’s objective.
I love oral arguments. I love the courtroom. I love the constitutional issues I work on, especially in First Amendment cases. I have broad experience that benefits clients and allows me to help younger lawyers, in client work, in CLEs and in pro bono work.
I'm an aggressive litigator who's not afraid to take a case to court. Whether a case ends up in trial or we pursue a settlement, my goal is always to reach a quick, favorable, and strategic resolution for my clients.
