I have worked Kirk Pittard and Thad Spalding on several of our high-profile cases and they are a huge asset to the case.  Their motion practice and attention to appellate issues during the litigation and trial phases has allowed us to succeed on multiple occasions.  Kirk and Thad are very responsive and I would highly recommend them as appellate counsel.
