Appellate Counsel - Principal Office In Dallas

Providing Representation In Civil & Criminal Appeals


972 802 1788

Briefs filed in actual appeals in which I represented either the Appellant (the person seeking to overturn the trial court’s verdict in a civil trial) or the Appellee (the prevailing party and the party seeking to protect its trial win).

I have not included briefs from child custody decisions or employment law briefs. These briefs are subject to court orders that restrict their dissemination, my own concerns about the privacy of the individuals involved, or non-disclosure agreements between the parties.
