Preserving Trial Errors for Appeal (California) (WEB)
Live upcoming webinar!
Whether you are a trial attorney or an appellate attorney, it is critical to know how to properly preserve your record for appeal. Failure to preserve an error correctly can doom an appeal – even when the error is quite clear.
We hold a lot of appellate programs here at Pincus and one of the things appellate attorneys tell us is about how frequently errors are not preserved on appeal.
If you take this webinar, you will not make that mistake again.
Long time appellate attorney Jay Allen Eisen, will walk you through the right steps needed to preserve error and past the traps and pitfalls that can mean loss of an appeal, no matter how strong a case you may have on the merits. You will learn about raising a timely and proper objection, making an offer of proof, making a specific request and submitting motions, among other things. Jay is a Fellow of the American Academy of Appellate Lawyers and a Past President of the California Academy of Appellate Attorneys.
This program will cover California law only.
Jay taught this course a few years ago and the attendees raved about it when speaking with us.
Extra benefit! All attendees receive a free copy of the webinar as a download within 24 hours of the program.

“I have utilized all of the service providers that I noted in the survey and truly felt I received great service from each. My favorite continuing legal education seminar provider, Pincus Professional Education is particularly noteworthy though. I have attended about five Pincus seminars. Each was phenomenally packed with useful content and had presenters/speakers of the highest skill level. I would unhesitatingly recommend Pincus to other lawyers and am already planning my next couple of seminars with this CLE provider.” – Quote from The Recorder’s ‘Best of CA 2013′ survey.
“It’s not merely about getting in the required CLE hours. The content of your Circuit Court Boot Camp that I took impressed me and sold me on your programs. It’s very easy to get the hours. Getting something of substance that is beneficial is different. I’m proud to say that this is what separates you from the competition.” – Jerry Szymanski, Esq.
