Experienced & Knowledgeable
When you have a bad result at trial, I have the knowledge and experience to help you decide when to appeal and how to present your appeal to achieve the best result possible. Successfully prosecuting your appeal requires both excellent writing and advocacy skills, plus insider knowledge of how the appellate courts work. My experience offers all of those critical factors for your appeal. Call me to set up a consultation and find out if I can help you.
I began my private practice after more than ten years as an Oakland County judicial attorney. My experience spans commercial, civil, criminal, personal injury, liability, and dispute resolution matters and cases held in both Michigan and Federal courts. Working closely with trial and appellate judges has given me unique insight into drafting effective legal documents and preparing for litigation, and my clients benefit from this expertise every day.
Over the past 20 years, I’ve learned from accomplished lawyers, judges, and writers and crafted thousands of documents for countless cases. My comprehensive experience enabled me to build a practice around doing what I enjoy most—helping fellow attorneys and individual citizens with their legal writing and appellate needs.

Ann is an excellent attorney. I have known Ann for over 15 years and she is extremely knowledgeable on the law. She has advised me in the past on some matters and I have valued her advice and counsel tremendously. She possesses great skill as a problem solver. I find her to be very personable and very accommodating. I really admire her ability to communicate a legal issue to a non-lawyer like myself. Should I have a legal need arise, I will not hesitate to contact her again. I recommend Ann Erickson Gault highly.
