Jevon Bindman and Erica Holzer Present at the 2023 Appellate Practice Institute for Minnesota CLE
February 24, 2023
Jevon Bindman and Erica Holzer, litigation partners at Maslon, will present a session Feb. 24 at the 2023 Appellate Practice Institute for Minnesota CLE. The session, moderated by Jevon and featuring Erica as a panelist, will explore the benefits of maintaining a generalist practice to help build trial and appellate skills, which are essential for any civil litigator but are becoming more difficult to develop due to lawyer specialization and fewer opportunities. The session is adapted from an article co-authored by Jevon and Minnesota Supreme Court Justice G. Barry Anderson, which appeared in Bench & Bar of Minnesota in December 2022. Justice Anderson will also serve as a panelist.
