“A new ‘Bible' for appellate practice.... Part treatise, part do-it-yourself manual, and part map of the road through an appeal.” – Luther Munford, The Appellate Advocate

“Appellate Practice in the Federal and State Courts has been written by America's true masters of our appellate tradition. It should find a place in every court or bar association library; and certainly in the library of a firm or lawyer whose practice brings him or her to appellate courts.” – From the preface by the Honorable Ruggero J. Aldisert, Senior U.S. Circuit Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit

Appellate Practice in Federal and State Courts is a complete guide to the appellate process for both practitioners and students. From preserving issues for appeal to preparing winning motions, skilled appellate lawyers provide insights on key considerations at every stage.

What questions should you ask a client before undertaking an appeal? What can “thaw” the “frozen record” from lower courts? What are the mechanics of petitioning for a writ of certiorari? This valuable new book offers step-by-step advice, strategic thinking and insights on critical issues before, during and after an appeal.

Topics covered include: the decision to appeal; preserving issues for appeal; standards of review; standing to appeal; timely filing; how courts view the “Record on Appeal”; appellate motion practice; using amicus briefs effectively; preparing persuasive appellate briefs and oral arguments; post-appeal proceedings; review by courts of last resort; the use of information technology in appellate courts; and how to develop and market an appellate practice.

Whether you are a newcomer or a veteran practitioner, whether you need guidance on appellate motion practice or on marketing an appellate practice, Appellate Practice in Federal and State Courts is an essential reference.
