California Practice Guide: Civil Appeals and Writs is written by Jon B. Eisenberg, with contributing editor Laurie J. Hepler (Greines Martin Stein & Richland LLP).

This practice guide helps both trial litigators and appellate specialists represent clients in civil appeals and writs in California state courts. It addresses the “nuts and bolts” of appellate procedure as well as the more complex procedural problems faced by appellate advocates.

The most recent state and local court rules, applicable statutes, and relevant caselaw are cited in the development of each topic and procedure. The guide includes sample practice-tested forms and briefs that adhere to the latest rules, with comments and suggestions for their use.
