The Perfect Proffer

Sometimes when the trial court rules against you, the only thing you can do is proffer and hope for the best. But trials are rarely clear cut affairs where the need for a proffer is apparent or the time to make one is available. Appellate attorney Jason Lambert from Zinzow Law analyzes the three types of proffers recognized by Florida's courts and offers some practical tips for ensuring your proffer preserves the issue for appeal.

Any questions may be submitted in advance to Chris Donovan at cdonovan@ralaw.com or Kansas Gooden at kgooden@boyd-jenerette.com. Please register for this informative seminar.
