SKV Partner Michelle Stratton to Speak to Houston Bar Association’s Appellate Section


On April 13, 2023, Michelle Stratton will present a CLE to the HBA’s Appellate Section entitled, “Build A Better Brief: Tips for Improving Your Legal Writing.” Brief-writing is a core skill of appellate (and trial) work.

She’ll share tips she has gleaned over the years to take a brief from good to great.
