E01 - Andrew Fleischman
In our first interview episode, Ryan Locke interviews Andrew Fleischman, a criminal defense attorney at Ross & Pines and a former appellate public defender with over 50 oral arguments under his belt. Andrew is known for his encyclopedic knowledge of Georgia law and his ability to present legal concepts in a simple, no-nonsense way. In this episode, Andrew talks about how he prepares an appeal, from first read of the transcript through oral argument. He shows us how he develops his incredibly effective case introductions. And he discusses what separates good oral arguments from bad ones, including examples. Andrew fares well in the lightning round, sharing his thoughts on the parenthetical "(cleaned up)," how he hyperlinks his briefs, and why he pays careful attention to drafting the fact section.
