Published Decisions

Most criminal appeals are decided by memorandum opinions, which are provided to the parties but carry no precedental value.  We have been involved in almost 200 appeals resulting in memorandum opinions.

Less common, when an appeal raises significant new or novel legal issues, it is decided by a published opinion, which is binding on both the lower court and the appellate court in all future cases.  All cases resulting in a reversal of a defendant's conviction must be published.  We have represented the defendant in two dozen cases resulting in a published decision.

You may view a summary of those cases and links to the court's opinions at this page.
