In the twenty-first episode of our firm’s video web series, which can be viewed below, firm owner John P. Fishwick, Jr., associate attorney Daniel J. Martin, and firm investigator Isaac Van Patten discuss the United States Supreme Court, and the ways in which the nation’s highest court affects our practice even in Roanoke, Virginia, and surrounding areas. The legal principle known as stare decisis requires all lower courts to follow Supreme Court rulings. Thus, when we argue cases in federal and even state courts, where we fight most of our clients’ battles, the U.S. Supreme Court’s rulings significantly affect our practice.
