Clarence Darrow said it best, “You can only protect your liberties in this world by protecting the other man’s freedom. You can only be free if I am free.” Every single person deserves to have their day in court, to be vigorously represented by counsel, to present evidence on their behalf, to confront witnesses, and to be tried by a jury of their peers. This is the essence of our justice system. Too often, however, defendants are denied these basic rights at their trial. This is where an appellate attorney comes into play. A good appellate attorney must be well-versed in the law, be able to spot all of the different legal errors that occurred at trial, and be willing to fight tooth and nail for their clients. Nothing is more important than protecting the liberty and constitutional rights of every one of my clients and making sure each of my clients has their fair day in court.
