To Appeal or Not to Appeal?

When you receive an adverse decision there are three questions you face: 1) can I appeal it ?  2) if I can, do I want to—what are the pros and cons? and 3) if I decide to appeal, how can I increase my chances of success?  This webinar, presented by Jill Wheaton, Chair of the Dykema Appellate Practice group, addresses all  three of these issues.
