My practice focuses on civil appeals, representing appellants taking an appeal or appellees defending against an appeal. I handle all types of civil appeals---torts, property, and contracts. I am particularly adroit with appeals involving complex business disputes. I have appealed cases in some of the most difficult areas of law, including antitrust, securities fraud, and international bankruptcies. When I do an appeal, I review the record and take the case apart to analyze the fundamental legal issues. My goal is to help clients reconceptualize their case and provide a new perspective for the appellate court. I am an exceptional brief writer with excellent analytical skills well-suited to complicated appeals. I relish difficult and am particulary good at explaining complex legal concepts.
Some of my notable cases include:
As part of my appellate practice, I write amicus (or friend of the court) briefs for clients interested in appeals pending before state and federal appellate court, including the US Supreme Court. With a background and facility in arguing public policy issues, I can help any organtization---i.e. non-profits, trade assocation, etc.---craft an effective amicus brief that concisely states and argues a position. Indeed, I drafted amicus brief and attended oral argument at U.S. Supreme Court in Arizona v. U.S. on behalf of thousands of employers opposed to SB 1070 – Arizona’s controversial immigration law.
