About me

I do this blog just for the nerdy fun of it — in real life I’m a federal appellate lawyer in Philadelphia. My practice focuses on Third Circuit civil and criminal appeals. I also consult with lawyers on their federal appeals. You can reach me at Matthew@Stieglerlaw.com.

Before I went to law school and realized I was born to do appeals, I worked as a newspaper reporter, an organizer for a statewide pro-choice group, and a Senate campaign staffer for the last guy who ran against Jesse Helms. I graduated law school with highest honors and clerked for a Tenth Circuit judge.

I started my practice in 2009. Before that I was an assistant federal defender handling capital habeas corpus cases and an adjunct law professor.

What I post here isn’t legal advice and doesn’t create an attorney-client relationship. Probably you already knew that.
