    I am a commercial litigation attorney. I have hired Paul for two consecutive appeals in the same case by a nightmare opponent. The second appeal was, at the time, on an entirely new Rule of Procedure on determining the amounts for supersedeas bonds. The new rule had burden shifting provisions to losing party at trial, which despite there being no reported law on the matter, the opponent/losing party had not realistically complied with. Excellent job on both appeals. Read less
