In Michael's Own Words

Success in appellate law results from a thorough understanding of the law, persuasive writing, an exhaustive legal research process, and a familiarity with the kinds of argument that matter to an appeals court. I have litigated appeals in all areas of the law including constitutional law, criminal law, divorce law, civil and administrative law, probate, and attorney-client relations.
