We Have Unique Insight Into Litigation

Not only have our Gainesville lawyers handled numerous cases from the initial stages of court proceedings through trial, but they have also experienced a unique behind the scenes look at the judge’s decision-making process. Indeed, our lawyers have worked for a federal district court and federal court of appeals, where they handled a wide array of federal cases and participated in all aspects of litigation and appellate practice. Our attorneys’ first-hand experience of litigation from the court’s perspective – and especially their participation in the court’s decision-making process – have furnished them with a unique and invaluable perspective on litigation and appeals.
