I will be presenting at the State Bar of Arizona’s annual ‘Working with the Court of Appeals” (WCCA), a CLE taking place on Friday, November 14th at the Hotel Palomar in Phoenix, Arizona from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

I am presenting the first seminar titled ‘How Not to Lose Your Appeal Before It Starts: Jurisdiction, Taking an Appeal and Preserving the Record’.

Attendees will learn about the new appellate rules going into effect Jan. 1, 2015, how to best work with appellate clerks, what influences judges in briefs and oral argument, how to structure and write your brief, when to take special action, what judges want to see, discussion of major decisions and how judges reach decision in appeals.

I am head of the appellate law department at Jaburg Wilk and have written over a hundred appellate briefs in the Arizona Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit Bankruptcy Appellate Panel, U.S. District Court, Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, Arizona Supreme Court, and United States Supreme Court.

Hope to see you there!
