Taylor Young is a lawyer dedicated to helping trial lawyers in appellate matters.
--Free yourself to focus on what you do best.--
Skilled factual development, a keen trial strategy, and deft expert witness examinations are the hallmarks of a great trial lawyer. These are the things you do best. But appellate practice requires a different set of skills and can divert your focus away from the core of your practice. Big firms know this. That's why they often have departments exclusively dedicated to appeals.
Your opponent has an appellate department. So can you.
Having the right appellate skills can make all the difference, whether you are defending a verdict or working to secure a reversal. I provide a range of services from simple ghostwriting to full service appellate representation, which includes a thorough review of the record, in-depth legal research, writing winning briefs, and persuasive oral argument.
In every case, I work closely with the trial lawyer to ensure continuity of representation throughout the litigation.
--Consulting and Support--
At the trial level, I research and write dispositive motions and other legal memoranda that not only apply at trial but also develop, preserve, and frame the appropriate legal issues for any possible appeal. These services extend to the critical post-trial phase of litigation as well. While I am focusing on the briefing, trial counsel is free to focus on factual development, trial strategy, and settlement negotiations.
--Advice and Evaluation--
I am happy to evaluate cases with trial lawyers and their clients and offer advice about whether to take on the time and expense of an appeal. When the case warrants it, I will take on appellate representation on a contingency fee basis or under another alternate fee arrangement.
