Appellate briefs outline your argument that will be used throughout the appeals process, and often briefs are the main point considered by appellate courts. Appellate briefs are first evaluated by a pre-hearing lawyer, then a legal clerk of the appellate judges, and finally by the Michigan Court of Appeals judges. Our post-conviction lawyers know how to write a winning brief that can convince the pre-hearing lawyers, clerks, and judges, and will tailor our briefs to each individual perspective so that it is clearly understood at every level.
While it is critical to comprehensively outline your argument, you also need a concise and clear-cut brief that is easy to understand. Our attorneys have been writing appellate briefs for over 10 years, and we know how to communicate arguments in a way that reaches multiple parties.
Our team will establish key central features of an argument and use those to selectively evaluate the issues that need to be addressed in a brief, allowing our team to draft clear and to the point arguments that utilize the effective tactics we know to be successful. Our attorneys will open with top arguments in a compelling introduction, and while some attorneys don’t include an introduction we know that judges favor briefs that get to the point by expressing main themes right away.
Judges want to know the facts, not biased opinions or irrelevant information. Our team will thoroughly review every detail of your case and set out the truth in a brief, increasing a client’s chances of being viewed favorably by a Michigan appellate judge. Each section of a brief must begin with the main point stated in bolded or capital font, and we know how to express simple, straightforward points that don’t detract from the argument we will be presenting.

Our attorneys also know how to close a brief leaving a judge with the facts and a comprehensive understanding of your appellate argument. Briefs ending with a clear concluding section outlining the judgment requested are usually the most effective, and our lawyers will explain why you should win your appellate case in this critical portion of a brief.
