Now in its fifth edition, this treatise is the go-to resource for federal appellate practice. This fifth edition contains updated, expanded chapters compiled in a one- of-a-kind federal appellate treatise. It incorporates significant appellate rule changes and includes, by request, a new, additional updated chapter 15 that compares and contrasts Florida versus federal appeals. Plus, the treatise contains a chapter 16 with form links posted by each circuit court of appeals. This appellate treatise uniquely draws on decades of a board certified appellate expert's actual experience and expertise, to help attorneys find the right rules and the pertinent law that they need for effective appellate briefing in all federal circuit courts of appeals. From the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit through the Eleventh Circuit, this book helps.
This is an invaluable treatise for attorneys. This resource is written by an eminently qualified twenty-plus-year board certified appellate specialist to help busy attorneys work through the complex maze of federal appeals and the appellate rules and decisions. Everything matters in a federal appeal, from timing of certain forms and events to content to font. This treatise is organized to make that process easier. It describes, in chronological order, the steps necessary to timely advance and defend the appeal for each federal circuit court of appeals, to handle appeals in the First Circuit to the Eleventh Circuit, from start to finish. It also addresses issues concerning jurisdiction, finality and appealability of various orders, final appeals and extraordinary writs, how to compile and supplement the record on appeal and the appendixes, motion practice, hearing and rehearing en banc, effective appellate briefs and strategies for response and reply briefs, attorney fees, preservation of error in the lower court, and standards of appellate review. A treatise of this kind is never "finished." As before, we welcome suggestions for helpful materials and additional chapters to be included in the next edition.
