ACS Florida: A look inside a U.S. Supreme Court case

Florida appellate lawyer Bryan Gowdy will talk about arguing before the U.S. Supreme Court in January 2022 in Gallardo v.

He has also argued two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, including Graham v.

He clerked for U.S. District Judge Maurice Paul and U.S. Circuit Judge Susan Black of the Eleventh Circuit.
