It is believed that to properly represent a person charged
with a criminal offense, an attorney must be well-versed in all
areas of law. An appellate lawyer should be experienced in a
courtroom to understand the operations of a trial.  A trial
lawyer must know the law and how to preserve an issue in
order to provide his client with the best chance to win at trial
or if unsuccessful, to provide his client with his best chance to
win on appeal, including habeas corpus.  Providing the jury
with the correct instructions and insuring that the jury
considers only what is proper under the law enables a
defendant the best chance to win at trial.  In other words, you
should not hire a trial lawyer or an appellate lawyer.  A
lawyer should possess both skills.
