The first case is another Anders Brief. Now you realize how common they are.
The second case is ... the return of an appeal that had originally been submitted as an Anders Brief - but one with which the Third Department disagreed. Ultimately, though, it was six of one, half a dozen of the other.
Also, as I am closing in on Case #400, if you've been reading these cases/decisions right along with me, as well as reading my legal analysis of each one, then you're doing what people have done for centuries: reading the law. It's basically how one trains to become an attorney in the first place. Sadly, upon graduating from law school, it often becomes a lost art. Nevertheless, the best way to keep one's legal analytical reasoning skills intact - while also keeping abreast of current case law - is to regularly read the decisions issued by the various courts. So, remember: every Thursday, check out the Third Department's website for the latest decisions.
Check out the website and find "Fees" on the right of the upper navigation bar. Click "Fees" and scroll down to "12Q: Do you handle appeals and, if so, how much do you charge?" I am certain that you will discover that my rates are very hard to beat. Give me a call or send me an email.
Have a happy and safe Halloween!
