As you have read this website, you have noticed that
appellate law is a specialty....that requires unique training and experience that most trial attorneys do not have. You
have also noted that this attorney actually does have significant training both as a trial attorney and as a Certified
Appellate Specialist. This attorney's unique background does let him bring to the table on behalf of his clients the best
of both worlds: the smell of the trial courtroom and the grasp needed of the deliberation process critical to a
successful appellate practice.
