  • Brian M. Fishman

    Start reading any appellate brief prepared by Todd Mosser and you instantly know you're dealing with one of the finest appellate attorneys in the region. It's great to be intelligent. Knowing the law is always a plus. But, when one can succinctly and eloquently put pen to paper and make a persuasive argument combining the facts of the case and recent precedent, you've got something special. And, Mr. Mosser is a master in the field of appellate law. I strongly endorse him.

  • Robert Patrick Link

    Todd is an incredible appellate and criminal defense attorney. He has successfully appealed cases that many attorneys would have shied away from taking. If you made a mistake with your first lawyer you may pay the price for the rest of your life as far as years behind bars, reporting under Megan's law or never getting a decent job. But the fight isn't over when you hire Todd, who has the ability to find the diamond in the rough issue that could get you a new trial or have the case thrown out altogether. I highly recommend Todd Mosser
