If you were represented by an attorney in your civil case, you are likely considering rehiring your attorney for the appeal or hiring a new attorney who is familiar with appellate work.
William has litigated cases in both the trial and appellate courts, and and he has learned that those courtrooms can be worlds apart. A trial attorney works in a chaotic, quick moving environment and employs simplistic, emotional arguments to persuade a jury made of people form the community. An appellate attorney operates in a hyper-legal environment, submitting 50-page briefs and petitions to a panel of judges who scrutinize every word and citation.
William is a legal counselor and advocate for his clients. Initially, he speaks with the client about the case, ensures the notice of appeal is filed, and orders the transcripts of the trial. Then he reviews the transcripts and provides his professional assessment on the options and strategies available to his client. If the client wants to go forward with the case, then William becomes an advocate, zealously litigating the case at every level to archive a successful result for his client.
