The Appellate Expertise You Need

Former Florida Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw explained why appellate expertise are so important:


"[T]here is a difference between the skills needed in litigating a case before trial and appellate courts. Trial litigation - focusing on jury trials - requires jury arguments that are generally structured to lead ordinary people to decide something based on compelling emotional arguments. . . . In appellate advocacy, however, the emphasis switches and the attorney must stress the application of law to facts - keeping in mind the appellate court's concern for uniformity of the law and doing justice."


Hon. Leander Shaw, Supreme Court of Florida, quoted in Appellate Specialization and the Art of Appellate Advocacy by J. S. Carroll, 74-June Fla. B.J. 107 (2000) (quoting letter to author).
