Experienced appellate lawyer, Paul has argued more than 30 appeals in courts throughout the country, including eight in the US Supreme Court, before en banc sittings of the Fifth, Ninth, and Tenth Circuits, and several arguments before panels of the First, Third, Fourth, Fifth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, DC, and Federal Circuits.
