Appellate Advocacy

Beth-at-SCOTUSAfter a hard-fought battle in the trial court, it’s not surprising that many lawyers find it difficult to change their focus from establishing the facts to only arguing the law. New counsel can provide a more objective view of the best approach on appeal, and present your case in its best light to a new audience.

Beth has had an active appellate practice since she became a lawyer in 1995. She has represented clients before the Montana Supreme Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. As a law professor, she taught appellate advocacy and worked with students to refine their oral arguments for moot court competitions.

Beth will work with you to understand and analyze the essential facts from the record and prioritize your legal arguments. Her legal analysis and writing skills are excellent. Her briefs will give your client the best opportunity to have his or her case reviewed favorably.
