A good appellate lawyer must have a strong ability to identify the best issues raised in a case, do thorough legal research, and be an excellent writer. Robert Richman has these skills.
Federal cases appealed in Minnesota go to the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals which is based in St. Louis, Missouri. A panel of three judges decide each case. Although the Court will often permit the lawyers 10 or 15 minutes to argue their case before the panel and answer questions, the principle arguments are made in writing in appellate briefs. Robert Richman has been writing federal appeals for 30 years and has honed the skills to be a highly respected appeals lawyer.
Among his victories on appeal he convinced the court that the district court had calculated the loss amount for his client’s bank fraud conviction incorrectly. Instead of a loss amount of $1.9 million, the court agreed the loss amount was $0. As a result, the court ordered the immediate release of the defendant from prison.
