This refers to legal research and argument in higher courts. In Texas courts a decision by a district judge can be appealed to the Court of Appeals and then to the Texas Supreme Court. If a case is in federal court, a decision by the federal district court can be appealed to the 5th Circuit and then the United States Supreme Court. Blake Bailey is licensed to practice in all of these courts. It is a distinct advantage for the trial lawyer to also be schooled in appellate law. This gives him the advantage of trying a case while carefully avoiding error that might reverse a judgment on a appeal. It also puts him in position to keep the opposing counsel from improperly presenting his or her argument.
