Appellate work is very different from trial work. Though an appellate advocate should be a competent trial attorney, not all trial attorneys should be appellate advocates. Paul Croushore's overall successful direct appeal reversal rate is 39.6% as of July 10, 2020.
Only 6.3% of federal criminal appellate decisions are reversals nationally, but Paul's reversal rate for defendants on federal direct appeals is 42.4%.
At the state level, 17.6% of civil appeals result in reversals by the court of appeals for Cincinnati and Hamilton County, Ohio; Paul has succeeded 44.4% of the time in getting the trial court reversed in state civil cases. In criminal cases he has similarly secured reversals of the trial court's decision in 44.0% of criminal direct appeals, compared to the Cincinnati average of 10.6%.
Technical skill, while important, is not enough. There are many competent lawyers, but only a few who succeed in convincing appellate judges to make their trial court colleagues re-try or revise a case that has been decided. Very few are willing to discuss their success rates or publish all of their appellate decisions for your review on his website, .

Paul's comment: “I represented an accountant who was my C.P.A. In 2000 I fired him and sued him for defrauding me. The jury found him to have defrauded me, to be incompetent as my accountant, and to have tried to blackmail me. Shortly before trial he filed a disciplinary complaint; Disciplinary Counsel found no substance to the complaint, but asked for my records; I did not have my trust account records. I admitted that I failed to properly maintain custody of the records.”
