Ceci Berman Lectures At Trial Advocacy Seminar For Family Law Attorneys

Brannock & Humphries shareholder Ceci Berman presented on preserving the record for appeal at the Florida Bar Family Law Section’s 2019 Trial Advocacy Workshop, one of the most popular and advanced legal education programs for lawyers who devote their practice to family law.

The Trial Advocacy Workshop is designed to take attendees through a family law case from beginning to end, featuring topics such as developing a case strategy and theme, conducting direct and cross-examination of fact witnesses and experts, and presenting effective opening and closing arguments.  Always well-attended, it is led by some of the most experienced and well-respected attorneys, judges, and general magistrates in the field.

Ms. Berman’s portion of the seminar focused on how to run a “clean” trial and ensure that the record is properly positioned to either prosecute or defend a potential appeal.  She discussed how to preserve errors for appeal, provided practice pointers, and explained the strategy considerations for deciding whether to file a motion for rehearing.
