Chair's Message

I am writing my first "Chair's Message" from my balcony overlooking Mallory Square in Key West. We just finished our first retreat and long range planning session in over a decade. Appellate lawyers from all over the state descended upon the Conch Republic to have a voice in the future of our section.

All of us have busy professional lives, and we rarely have the time to stop and reflect on long term goals when we get together for our regular meetings. How can the Appellate Practice Section better serve our members, our appellate courts, our profession, and our legal community?
