The California Blog of Appeal Will Now Come to Order!

Greg May, presiding.

Welcome to my blog. I suggest you start by reading this post, then reading the “about” boxes in the left column, then clicking on the “About Greg May and G. T. May Law Offices” link at the top right of this page. (UPDATE: All the references in this post to other links on the blog are based on the blog’s original layout and no longer apply.)

The areas I intend to cover in this blog are:

1. Substantive legal developments in the California Courts of Appeal, California Supreme Court, and the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals.

2. Procedural law relating to the prosecution of appeals, writ petitions, and post-trial motions in state and federal courts in California.

3. Practical skills essential to appellate practice.

Of course, the blog may develop as we go along. Don’t be surprised to see commentary on ethics or anything else that catches my attention, so long as it is relevant to appellate practice.

If you’d really like to stay up-to-date, use the available RSS feed near the top of the right-most column on this page.

Commenting is not currently enabled, but if there is enough demand for it, that will change.

Finally, feel free to contact me anytime at

Thanks for visiting. Come back soon.
