Welcome to Texas Appellate Watch, a new appellate blog from the Appellate Practice Group at Thompson & Knight LLP. With six partners who are Board Certified in Civil Appellate Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, we have a deep bench to provide you with interesting and useful content and commentary.

In this article, I discuss words that you should never use in a brief, such as disingenuous, specious, or clearly. These types of words are toxic to your argument because they detract from your credibility. To read the entire article, click on this link.
