Family law firm
Barach Family Law Group, LLC announces that its founding attorney
Matthew P. Barach has published a new book, “The Family Law Guide to Appellate Practice.” This first-of-its-kind guide, published by the American Bar Association
(ABA), fills a void in legal literature by focusing on the unique issues
involved in appealing a family law case. Ideal for both family law attorneys
and pro se litigants, this practical guide discusses the complex factors
involved in deciding whether to appeal a family court decision, and then
how to proceed with the appeal.
In the book, Barach shares his family law appellate expertise with other
lawyers to help them navigate this highly specialized and complex area
of law. With step-by-step guidance, he begins by focusing on the crucial
decision to appeal and the critical factors involved, including ethical
considerations. The author also examines the effective use of post-trial
remedies, such as utilizing stays of judgments pending appeals, and creating,
protecting and reviewing the record of the trial court.
Finally, the book focuses on the expectations and importance of an oral
argument in an appellate case, including preparing, presenting and handling
panel questions of the various types of jurists and ends with the aftermath
of an appellate decision.

LLC. With over 20 years of family law experience, he regularly appears

Law Courts. He also appears before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, the
