Florida Supreme Court Amends Rules of Appellate Procedure to Change Briefing Deadlines

January 7th, 2019 by

Effective January 1, 2019!

Florida Appellate Briefing DeadlinesOn October 25, 2018, the Florida Supreme Court issued an order adopting proposed amendments to the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure. The aspect of the order that will have the biggest impact on the appellate process in Florida is the change to the briefing deadlines for many Florida appeals and original proceedings.

The general theme of the amendments is that most deadlines triggered by service of an order or document have been extended.

Deadlines triggered by the filing of a document, on the other hand, have not been changed by the amendments. (more…)

Board-Certified Appellate Specialist Michael Brownlee to Speak at the Christian Legal Society National Conference

September 24th, 2018 by
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.
