”[How to Handle an Appeal is a] gold mine of practical suggestions and down-to-earth wisdom for dealing with each of the many aspects of an appeal … Reading this book should prove worthwhile to every lawyer who handles an appeal, novice and veteran alike.”
—George C. Pratt, Circuit Judge (Retired) of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit
”Levy is a master of his craft … The title of this book should not be merely ’How to Handle an Appeal.’ It should sound more like ’Effective Strategy for Success in the Appellate Courts — By One Who Has Been There.’”
—New York Law Journal
PLI’s How to Handle an Appeal gives you the winning edge at every stage of the process — from preserving points for appeals and perfecting appeals, to drafting persuasive briefs and delivering compelling oral arguments, to protecting clients’ interests after the decisions.
How to Handle an Appeal stresses crucial technical issues that attorneys often overlook, including how to make a motion for leave to appeal; obtain stays; prepare and file the record; meet appellate deadlines; and master the record in preparation for the brief.
Featuring a 14-page appellate checklist, sample forms, and model briefs, How to Handle An Appeal shows you how to identify and spotlight your strongest arguments; overcome the weak aspects of your case; check and capitalize on compelling legal precedents; craft different appellate game plans for different courts; prepare sharp counter-arguments to neutralize your opponents’ lines of attack; get an edge during judicial questioning; and avoid typical appellate errors.
Updated at least once a year, How to Handle an Appeal offers indispensable guidance to every attorney who handles an appeal and is a useful reference for every judge who hears one.
