Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals

FIND RELIABLE AMICUS CURIAE ASSISTANCE

The attorney at the Law Office of Lawrence J. Joseph has filed scores of amicus briefs in all federal circuits and the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as several state supreme courts and trial courts. Mr. Joseph has represented a variety of clients, including U.S. and state senators and representatives, state and local government, trade associations, public-interest groups, and concerned individuals.

Although the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit often ignores amicus-raised arguments that the parties did not raise in trial court, an amicus brief can nonetheless press arguments that are either jurisdictional or sufficiently related to the issues that the parties did raise in trial court. Moreover, even when an appellate court expressly ignores an amicus-raised argument, that preserves the issue for future litigation.
