I formed Atler Law Firm, P.C. to focus primarily on appellate work, although I continue to handle a number of matters at the trial level.  Concentrating on appeals allows me to be a better resource to other litigators who prefer to focus on trial practice and who appreciate the advantages of having an appellate practitioner involved.  I find working with other lawyers to be incredibly effective and rewarding because our strengths and expertise often complement one another.
