Hon. Amy L. Blake, Associate Justice, Massachusetts Appeals Court

Hon. Kevin Connelly, Probate and Family Court

Matthew P. Barach, Esq., Attorney and Author of The Family Law Guide to Appellate Practice (Moderator)


Join our distinguished panel of an Appeals Court Justice, a Probate and Family Court Judge, and an experienced family law practitioner to learn how to best handle a family law appeal from beginning to end.

Learn how to ensure a good trial record to enable all your potential, and actual appellate issues will be heard by the Appeals Court. The logistics of filing the appeal and assembly of the record with the Probate Court will be explained. Learn the appellate process including the drafting of an effective appellate brief. Hear from an Appeals Court Justice how the merits of your family law appeal will be reviewed and weighed by the Appeals Court.

Family law matters are intimately personal, and touch upon people's most private treasures and issues. This perspective directly affects all aspects of domestic relations, including appellate practice. Serving as a practical guide on whether to appeal a family court decision, and then how to proceed with the appeal, this is a valuable resource for both the newer and the more seasoned family lawyer, filling a void in the literature by focusing on the unique issues involved in appealing a family law case.
