Appellate Practice

Our Appellate Department is committed to providing you with the best representation possible. We represent clients in all five of Illinois’s Appellate District Courts, in the Illinois Supreme Courts, and in the Federal Circuit Courts. We have a breadth of experience litigating complex appeals that few firms can match.

Experienced, Articulate, Successful

The best appellate lawyers have the ability to pinpoint critical issues in a case, analyze complex issues of law, generate well-reasoned arguments, and articulate those arguments orally and in writing.

Our Appellate Team represents clients in all five of Illinois’s Appellate Districts, before the Illinois Supreme Court, and in the Federal Court of Appeals. We have experience with both criminal and civil appeals, including cases involving family law, malpractice, business disputes, commercial litigation, product liability, FDCPA claims, and personal injury. While most of our appellate cases originate in Chicago and Cook County, DuPage County, Kane County, Kendall County, Lake County, McHenry County, Will County, or DeKalb County, our appellate practice spans the entire state of Illinois.

Why Get Appellate Counsel?

Appellate practice is governed by its own set of rules and procedures. It requires a different style of writing and advocacy, as well as the ability to analyze a case from a multitude of angles to ascertain the best bases for appeal. Similarly, oral arguments before the Appellate and Supreme Courts are more formal and are structured differently than in the trial courts.

Our Appellate Team is highly trained, experienced, and skilled in these nuanced areas of advocacy.
