Anthony May and Jamie Strawbridge attend Appellate Practice for Trial Lawyers seminar with Maryland Association for Justice.

Attorneys Anthony May and Jamie Strawbridge attended an Appellate Practice for Trial Lawyers seminar hosted by the Maryland Association for Justice on March 7. The event, hosted in Baltimore, discussed the critical appellate rule changes and writing techniques that every trial lawyer should know. It dove into recent changes in Maryland appellate rules that have impacted the timing of briefings, brief contents, and oral arguments. It also examined the importance of effective writing in Maryland appellate practice.

Moderated by attorney Zebulan P. Snyder, the seminar featured the Hon. Douglas R. M. Nazarian, a judge of the Appellate Court of Maryland, and attorney Steven M. Klepper.
