I am an appellate attorney located in Dallas. I am not a general practitioner. If you need to have a will drawn up, it is better to use someone else.
I worked as a briefing attorney for the First Court of Appeals. Each justice has two briefing attorneys and each briefing attorney is responsible for preparing one draft opinion per week. This requires learning the entire case and all of the case law and then drafting an opinion. This process taught me how to be a convincing-appellate advocate.
Since leaving the Court of Appeals, I have done both civil and criminal appeals. I have argued to the Fifth Court of Appeals.
Many attorneys do one or two appeals a year. But successful-appellate representation requires someone who writes briefs on a regular basis and someone who can conduct research in resources that most attorneys never use.
Whether you are appealing a decision against you or you are trying to protect a judgment that you obtained, selecting the right appellate attorney is important.
