Appellate AttorneyOrlando-based appellate attorney Michael Brownlee has been selected to speak at the 2018 Christian Legal Society National Conference. This year’s theme is “Being Faithful: Advocating for Justice, Mercy, and Truth.”  The conference will be held October 11-14 in Clearwater Beach, Florida. Mr. Brownlee will be presenting on Friday, October 12, at 1:30 p.m.

About the Conference Workshops

Conference workshop topics will include appellate practice, church and nonprofit law, estate planning, and more. As a board-certified appellate attorney with extensive experience performing oral arguments in multiple appellate courts across the nation, Mr. Brownlee plans to speak on appellate issues that affect lawyers and clients alike. Mr. Brownlee’s workshop is titled “Appealing to a Higher Power: Do’s, Don’ts, and Maybe’s.”

“Many attorneys wonder whether they should handle the appeal themselves or bring in an appellate specialist. This presentation will put attorneys in a better position to help answer that question,” states Mr. Brownlee. “The workshop will cover the musts in appellate practice (do’s), a few never events (don’ts), and a smattering of stylistic choices and strategic decisions that are worthy of debate (maybe’s).”

“Many trial lawyers have questions when faced with an appeal,” added Brownlee. “If this includes you, then this workshop is your chance to get exclusive information on how to best handle your appeal for the most optimal outcome.”

Appeals differ greatly from traditional trials and can be problematic for those unfamiliar with the ins and outs of the appellate process. Mr. Brownlee’s workshop will provide attendees with a deeper look at the appellate process from the perspective and insight of a board-certified specialist to better understand how this process can affect the outcomes of appeals.
