Washington Appellate Practice Deskbook

Publication Year: 4th ed. 2016   Publication Type: Deskbook


The Washington Appellate Practice Deskbook is the only treatise devoted exclusively to practice in Washington appellate courts, providing not only analysis of the Rules of Appellate Procedure but simple and direct practice tips for both the novice and the experienced appellate lawyer.

In addition to addressing amendments to the Rules of Appellate Procedure, the two volumes of the fourth edition have been reorganized to more efficiently answer questions of appellate practice and procedure – from appealability (final or interlocutory order? applicable standard of review? issue preserved for review?), to staying enforcement of trial court decisions, to administrative law appeals, brief writing, oral argument, Supreme Court practice, and attorney fees and costs on appeal.
