Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Still Going Strong

Today is the fourth anniversary of my firm.

When I first started, even good friends were skeptical.  Austin has far more than its share of lawyers, and a lot of them like to do appellate work.  I made sure people knew who I was and what I was doing, and the business came.  Needless to say, this blog has played a big part in my success.

Appellate practice is one of the areas in which the playing field between small and large firms is quite level, at least in terms of skill.  My work is interesting and intellectually stimulating, and I get to help clients in need.  How could I ask for more?
