“Degrees of appellate deference and standards of review are critical concepts that trial and appellate lawyers must understand.” Pulled from Sarah’s article. “As long as there is evidence to support the court’s finding, even if disputed, it will be upheld under the clearly erroneous standard.”
Involved in the DRI since 2008, Sarah currently holds the vice-chair of DRI’s Appellate Advocacy Committee. We are honored and proud to have Sarah as part of the C&J family and cannot wait to find out what she accomplishes next.
