Winning an appeal for a convicted felon is probably the hardest kind of appeal to win in state court. So don't shoot yourself in the foot by making avoidable stylistic and substantive mistakes that, quite understandably, drive appellate courts crazy. Eliminating the 31 bad habits addressed in Andy's presentation (Andy posted a baker's dozen on his Facebook page but since made that post private when the idea for this CLE was launched in the comments section) takes no effort and will automatically make your briefs better and up your odds of reversal.
