Disciplined in Sophisticated Defense and Insurance Litigation

December 07, 2015 | Webinar| Don't Win the Battle and Lose the War - An Appellate Tutorial on Preservation of Error

This webinar is designed to help claims professionals achieve finality when they resolve a claim.  Preserving error in the trial court, by knowing and applying the basic rules of preservation of error, will help preserve your win on appeal.  Butler Weihmuller Katz Craig LLP attorneys, Carol Rooney, a Board Certified Specialist in Appellate Practice, and Jared Krukar, a former Staff Attorney with the Second District Court of Appeal, will discuss preservation of error in Florida State Courts.  Error not preserved is error not reviewed.  Appellate attorneys can help claims professionals and their trial counsel long before the jury hears the case.  Please join Carol and Jared for this program designed to help you navigate the myriad of preservation issues before, during and post-trial. 

This webinar is scheduled for Monday, December 7, 2015 from 3:00pm to 4:00pm EST.
