About Our Services
We offer services in three principal areas:
REPRESENTATION IN APPELLATE LITIGATION
If you have lost a trial court judgment, or if you want to preserve your trial court victory, we can provide elite-level representation in state and federal appellate courts.
LEGAL RESEARCH AND WRITING
For attorneys and law firms, we can help you handle overflow work or specific projects where our skills and expertise can give you a winning advantage.
Members of the LGBTQ+ community often face unique and complicated legal problems. This is especially true for those making a gender transition or those who are gender non-conforming. We can help you overcome those legal problems and make sure that you get solutions that are tailored to your specific needs.
