Well-Known Family Lawyer, Matthew Barach, Publishes First-of-Its-Kind Book About Unique Issues Involved in Appealing a Family Law Case

| Apr 2, 2019 | Firm News

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.

Matthew P. Barach is the Founder and Principal of Barach Family Law Group, LLC. With over 20 years of family law experience, he regularly appears before Middlesex, Norfolk, Worcester, Suffolk and Essex County Family Law Courts. He also appears before the Massachusetts Appeals Court, the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court and the First Circuit of Appeals. His prestigious career includes winning two landmark family law cases in the Commonwealth pertaining to the New Alimony Reform Act and child custody – removal of a minor child from the Commonwealth (George v George and Miller v Miller).
