CLEonline.com, together with the Houston Bar Association (HBA), are pleased to present a special online CLE program in the areas of general litigation and appellate law. This seminar will focus on actions you can take in the trial court designed to enhance the presentation of your case on appeal or make it a less attractive option for an opponent. The victorious trial court litigant who prepares for appeal is less likely to have to face it. This course features a streaming video and a downloadable MP3 audio presentation from a live CLE seminar on this topic that was originally conducted by the Houston Bar Association (HBA) on October 3, 2014. You can access this presentation on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session. This course is approved for 1.25 MCLE hours.

Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:

  • How to avoid appeals
  • How to prepare for appeals
  • How a litigant can make their case better
  • Action in the trial court

The speaker for this course is Mr. Iain Simpson, an attorney with the firm of Simpson, P.C. in Houston. Mr. Simpson represents companies and individuals in civil appellate matters for small law firms, and general civil practice in commercial and personal injury law. He is admitted to practice in all state courts in Texas, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. He is a member of the State Bar of Texas and the Houston Bar Association. He received his law degree from University of Houston Law School (J.D., 1994) and his undergraduate degree from Trinity University (B.A.. 1988). A more extensive biography for Mr. Simpson may be found at his firm's website.
