Kerridge heads Durst Kerridge’s Appellate Practice, drawing upon a decade of clerkships and high-level appellate training. Paul holds a rare pedigree in being an alumnus clerk of both the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the Supreme Court of Ohio.

Paul has realized appellate victory at the highest levels, including a recent victory in a United States Supreme Court appeal.
