Firm’s Segal Institute Featured in Philadelphia Inquirer

On June 6, 2007 by Schnader in News

Schnader’s Bernard G. Segal Institute for Appellate Advocacy was featured in the June 6, 2007 edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer in an article titled “Helping Attorneys Hone Appeals.” Schnader partner Nancy Winkelman, executive director of the Institute, stated: “The legal community recognizes that the appellate practice is a distinct legal specialty. Appellate-level clients and trial lawyers are recognizing that it takes some unique skills.” Nancy also mentioned that the Firm hoped to eventually begin assisting clients much earlier in the appellate process by helping them write briefs, which she states are decisive in determining whether the case will be won or lost. “Writing the briefs in the most persuasive way possible is a skill, and it is a skill that not all lawyers have,” Nancy said.
