The seminar will discuss key considerations and best practices for bringing forth a family law appeal, as covered in Matthew Barach’s recently published book, “The Family Law Guide to Appellate Practice.”
Matt will provide step-by-step guidance on the appellate process so family attorneys and pro se litigants can learn how to:
• Distinguish and review all potential options to an appeal
• Identify and recognize when an appeal is the only option for a client
• Explain the mechanics of appellate procedure
• Formulate effective and successful appellate written and oral arguments
• Examine the aftermath of an appeal in procedure and in substance for the client
Matthew Barach is an esteemed family law trial and appellate attorney and the author of The Family Law Guide to Appellate Practice. With over 20 years of family law experience, Matt regularly appears before Middlesex, Norfolk, Worcester, Suffolk and Essex County Family Law Courts. He also appears before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and the First Circuit Court of Appeals.
