Episode Notes

Legal Talk Network producer Laurence Colletti interviews appellate attorney Ceci Berman and appellate judges Stephanie Ray, Morris Silberman, and Richard Suarez about their seminar “Differences Among the DCAs” at The Florida Bar 2015 Annual Convention. The appellate judges distinguish differences in motion practice, use of law clerks, staff attorneys, decision making, and what lawyers should and shouldn’t do to be successful in court. They agree that knowledge of individual court rules and concise legal arguments are the most important factors. As a lawyer, Ceci discusses her takeaways from the seminar.
