About the section of the brief where I indicate that I want to do an oral presentation: I think my documents/exhibits speak for themselves, but "in a nut shell" why an appellant would want to address the court orally?
First, that does not go in your brief. That is a section in your Notice of Motion.
If you think you have explained it well in your brief, then you may not want an Oral Argument, because if you do a poor job, you could be hurting your chances of a win, particularly if your opponent does a better job than he did on his brief. However, if the Judge is on the fence (and you can only speculate) if you are skilled at oral argument, you may be able to sway him. Also, oral argument can often give us the knowledge of whether the Judge is leaning our way or the other way, based on his questions of us and our opponent, at that court date.
Check out this handy article on Oral Argument. If you scroll down, you will find many tips on how to best present your matter, should you decide you want to.
