- Mitch Shelly of Alexander, Corder, Plunk & Shelly, P.C. of Athens, AL

"When faced with an adverse decision in the federal District Court 

dismissing our case we were highly discouraged that less than 10% of civil cases are reversed on appeal in the 11th Circuit. 

But we found Mike Skotnicki at Appeals and Briefs. Mike was 

intellectual, creative, a fabulous writer and a pleasure to work with. 

It was a smart investment on our part. What a tremendous asset 

Mike turned out to be---- Reversed and Remanded ! "
