Thank you for visiting. I am Carson J. Tucker, an appellate and insurance law attorney. I use this blog to communicate and engage with clients and colleagues about important court opinions, legal issues and policy. More about my practice can be found on my LinkedIn page, Carson J. Tucker on LinkedIn.
I research, I write, and I help people solve problems, and I advocate for them in court, mostly on appeal from unfavourable decisions of the inferior courts. Using a combination of updates on LinkedIn, this medium, as well as direct personal contact, I have been able to succeed by keeping my clients up to date on the most pressing issues of law and policy that interests them, engaging with them early about a case or issue, and coming up with a strategy to try and change it or support it, depending on the circumstances.
I intend this blog to generally cover issues of appellate law, with some more targeted and detailed analysis of cases that are important to my clients and to myself.
There is no legal advice intended or imparted by this blog.
