"he should write a book."

   John M

"Insightful and pragmatic information, that I wish I had when I stumbled through my first appeal. What an excellent idea to actually ask appellate judges their thoughts rather than pontificate and render his opinion - although considering the depth and breadth of this attorney's experience, I would give his "opinion" a great deal of weight."

   MaryAnn M

"Very informative, especially hearing about what the appellate judges themselves like or dislike."

   Adrian s

"Mr. Fitzpatrick is experienced and knowledgeable, and includes excellent practical tips in this clear and cogent presentation."
