Why Choose a Firm

That Focuses on Legal Research & Writing?

Oftentimes, issues and cases never proceed to trial or hearing and judges issue orders based only upon the written documents (motions or briefs) submitted by the attorneys. You only get one shot to make a first impression and often that shot comes in the form of the motions and briefs that are submitted to the court. To properly handle your case, you need a firm that has the right skills: the ability to sift through sometimes large amounts of information and distill the best arguments in written form; a capacity for detached, critical analysis; strong research skills to quickly hone in on relevant case law; and the ability to craft a compelling story and argument that will reach the judges deciding your case. 

Unlike other law firms, Dunsing, Deakins and Galera provide all of our clients with the additional value of a dedicated motions and appellate practice.
