Appellate Practice

The skill set of the appellate lawyer is different from the skill set of the trial lawyer. In handling and appeal, the key is focus. Irrelevancies and side-disputes that are common in the trial courts do nothing but detract from the force of the central narrative of the appeal. Focus takes time and planning. It is easy to argue everything, but hard to argue the right thing.
