On Monday, May 21, 2012, Austin appellate lawyer Amanda Taylor and I will be giving a talk entitled “You Have a Verdict—Now What?” to the Austin Bar Civil Litigation Section. The program will begin at noon in the ABA seminar room. To RSVP, contact Lois Gardner at (512) 476-1080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The discussion will focus on strategies for obtaining appellate attorney fees, formulating and opposing a final judgment from the verdict, post-verdict preservation of error, enforcing and superseding the judgment, and the initial steps toward taking an appeal. We will also offer some tips on managing the client’s expectations about the prospects for a successful appeal.
