At Seitles & Litwin, we specialize in appellate and post-conviction motions. Attorney Litwin, a former Eleventh Circuit Court of Appeals law clerk, brings the benefit of working on criminal appeals from the judicial level and has a thorough understanding of what it takes to mount successful criminal appeals. Ms. Litwin has extensive experience on both the state and federal levels in writing and arguing appeals at oral argument in front of the Eleventh Circuit and Florida’s district court of appeals.  Appellate arguments are notoriously complex and require the highest level of written and oral advocacy skills.
