  • Noteworthy Cases
  • I have personally handled over 1,250 state court post-conviction/appellate cases over the course of my practice. The majority of direct appeals have been from capital felony convictions, including, murder, assault, drug, robbery, and criminal sexual conduct cases. I have had some 500 decisions rendered in appellate court cases since 1993, in which I was the principal attorney of record.
    Since 2003 I have handled 150 Federal post-conviction cases and related evidentiary hearings. These have included numerous lengthy/complex multiple-party, drug conspiracy, fraud, money laundering, and tax evasion, jury trial appeals, as well as appeals from short trials, plea cases and resentencings.
    A summary of notable state and federal cases is available upon request.
