I am a practicing attorney. As a practicing attorney, I have been doing appeals for 20 years. Not all attorneys do appeals. In appealing a case, I research and write about errors that the judge or lawyers made before, during, or after a trial in a lower court. I present these errors to the appellate courts in a brief for their review. The appeals courts can then determine if the law and rules were followed in the case. If the laws were not followed, the appellate courts will reverse the decision or send the case back to the lower court for further action. Writing an appellate brief is very similar to the opinions the appellate courts write when they reverse or overturn a decision.
With my skills and experience, I am qualified to be an appellate judge and would appreciate your vote June 5th. Thank you.
