Helping Trial Lawyers Navigate the Appellate System

Continuing to Evolve

4203965136_285096c091_oReaders may have noticed some changes around here. Allow me to tie them together with a brief explanation.

New Design

More and more users are accessing the internet through smartphones or tablets—a trend that is sure to continue. My friends at LexBlog have thus rebuilt the site to be mobile-friendly. I am very pleased with the simple yet stylish new look and how it renders on both desktop and mobile devices.

New Contributors

Since launching this venture in January 2007, I have transitioned from solo appellate specialist to leader of a four-lawyer appellate boutique. I am privileged to work with some really smart, insightful people. It only seems right to showcase them here.

New Strategy

Running this site could be a full-time job if I could figure out a tasteful way to monetize it. Failing that, I’ll keep practicing law. But the ebb and flow of law practice creates challenges when it comes to regularly posting good content. With other contributors on board, readers can expect to see something new each week.

These changes are significant but positive. Others are on the horizon, if I can implement them successfully. To keep up with the latest, subscribe by RSS or email, or follow us on Twitter at @TXAppellateLaw.
