Appellate litigation is different. It demands a thorough understanding of the law, the intellectual heft and keen eye to spot a winning issue, and the ability to craft a clear, concise, credible brief that persuades a panel of judges your case simply cannot come out any other way.
The Smith Appellate Law Firm focuses on doing just that.
In the course of nearly a decade as the principal appellate litigator for Butzel Long, Michael F. Smith built one of Michigan's most dynamic and respected appellate practices, representing some of Michigan's best-known entities and individuals. In 2009 Mike established his own appellate boutique, where he continues to practice his craft with a combination of big-firm expertise and small-firm efficiency.
And because an appeal can be won, or lost, long before any appeal is taken, Mike regularly collaborates with trial counsel on motions and briefs at all stages of litigation - before, during and after trial - to best position his client's case for ultimate success.
If you're in litigation, by definition it's important litigation. The Smith Appellate Law Firm shares your goal: success on appeal.
