How do you figure out who is the best appellate attorney in a particular circuit?

Ask around and then check the circuit pacer to make sure that attorney has done a solid number of appeals. Listen to some of their oral arguments. Clerkship experience is also a good sign. I would generally look for someone who primarily does appeals and isn’t a trial attorney who also handles a few appeals.

Hi all. I’m trying to move from corporate biglaw to either private or public criminal defense. Is this transition likely? I’m a second year.

I'm seriously tired of all the injustice done by cops. I've now caught several in blatant lies... On video or on record.

Maybe this is a mild vent but it gets really hard to defend cases where constitutional violations are just being overlooked especially in an area that favors cops! Ugh🥺

Welcome to the Criminal Defense Attorneys Bowl. We hope you will ask question, share your stories about things happening in your practices, current events, cutting edge cases, and practice tips.

Judge-shopping is frowned upon in most jurisdictions, if not actually prohibited in the local Bar rules or in legislation. So, how do you handle providing your client with necessary advice when you walk into court and see that Judge Hardass is presiding? A colleague of mine is currently facing a Bar discipline panel over warning off his client. What should you do in that situation?

What is the best way to transition from insurance defense to criminal defense? I’ve been working in ID for about a year and have never been more bored in my life. I want to be challenged and do interesting work, but I’m not sure how to get started with no experience. Currently living in Chicago.

I’m currently in civil litigation but I’ve always loved the criminal defense law world. Does it make sense to go to a PD office to get trial experience to get my foot back in the criminal door?

On one hand, I’m thankful for the opportunity to learn from one of the best, but he also excoriates and belittles me for my mistakes. Any advice on how much it tolerable? I am here to learn and advance my career but he can be pretty nasty. (My mistakes are no worse than you’d expect a 1st year associate to make, in case you’re all wondering if I’m a major screw-up who deserves it) I leave work feeling a foot tall.
