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 appeals from the judicial level and has a thorough understanding of what it takes to mount a successful criminal appeal. Beyond this, both Attorney Seitles and Attorney Litwin have extensive experience on both the state and federal levels in writing and arguing appeals at or 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. Seitles & Litwin has also had tremendous success in filing and arguing post conviction motions (2255 motions and rule 3.850 motions) in the district or trial courts. Our history of success speaks for itself.
