Strategies For Effective Motion Practice In Family Law

Presented by the Family Law Section

The outcome of certain motions can make or break your case. In this program, prominent family law judges and lawyers will discuss strategies for important motions in family law, among them the effective use of discovery motions and related issue and evidentiary sanctions, when and how to use motions for receivership or for joinder, and what motions can or should be considered after the court has ruled on an important matter.

Discovery disputes are a bane to most every lawyer’s existence. This panel will cover motions to compel and motions for protective orders, when tobring them, how to oppose them, what constitutes a meaningful meet and confer, and obtaining sanctions for discovery abuses: monetary, issue, and evidentiary.
