Formulating Effective Appellate and Trial Strategies

Thursday, October 19, Noon—1:00 p.m.

At this member’s luncheon, Bryan S. Gowdy, board certified in Appellate Practice by the Florida Bar and advocate before the U.S. and Florida Supreme Courts, will provide practitioners with strategies for a successful client resolution in light of the three potential decision-makers in every case:  the trial judge, the jury, and the appellate judges.  He will explain the different characteristics of each decision-maker and how an effective trial advocate must simultaneously persuade the trial decision-makers and make a record that will persuade the appellate judges.  He will advise on both avoiding and preserving issues for appeal; how to balance winning on appeal versus winning in the trial court; when to seek appellate review; what factors to consider when evaluating whether an appeal is sensible and appropriate; and ethical obligations to disclose authorities. This luncheon is free to members and $15 for non-members. To register, please RSVP to Maria Daniels, admin@jaxfedbar.org, or you may do so below.
