Attorney Marc Fiedler Gives Seminar Presentation On Appellate Practice

By Peter DePaolis

Koonz McKenney partner and Washington, D.C. injury lawyer Marc Fiedler gave a presentation with Judge Joseph F. Murphy, Jr. of the Maryland Court of Appeals on the topic, Trial Lawyers in Appellate Courts, on January 22, 2010 at the Workhorse Seminar 2010.

The full-day seminar, sponsored jointly by the Maryland Association for Justice and the Trial Lawyers Association of Metropolitan Washington, D.C., brought together more than 75 trial lawyers from Maryland and the District of Columbia to learn how to improve their law practice from experts such as Mr. Fiedler. The presentation by Mr. Fiedler and Judge Murphy, supported by a detailed written handout that they prepared, focused on specific ways for trial lawyers to become more effective appellate advocates. Among the topics on which they touched were framing the appellate issues cogently, developing winning strategies, writing persuasive briefs, and delivering powerful oral arguments. The presentation was well received by the attendees.

Mr. Fiedler is a specialist and well-recognized expert in handling appeals and dispositive motions. A graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, he served as a law clerk for two appellate judges before joining Koonz McKenney 25 years ago. The Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers and Washingtonian Magazine have all recognized Mr. Fiedler as a leading practitioner of personal-injury litigation and appellate law.
