Illinois Appellate Lawyers
Aggressive Chicago Appellate Attorneys for Federal and State Appeals
Once a case is decided by a trial court, an appeal is the only opportunity to have this decision overturned. For an appeal to be successful, one must convince a higher court that either the trial court was in error or that it was correct in its analysis. Both appellants and appellees require the skill of an experienced appellate litigator.
At Momkus McCluskey LLC, our appellate practice team thoroughly examines each client's case to look for potential issues that can be reviewed on appeal. We analyze the facts and law of each case, and we prepare a strong argument to convince the panel of appellate court justices of our client’s position.
Our appellate attorneys focus on finding the pertinent issues that are most likely to result in a successful appeal. Appellate work is different than that of trial practice, as it many times focuses on complex and novel issues of law. Momkus McCluskey LLC is known for presenting such issues with clarity, succinctness, and commitment.
Momkus McCluskey LLC has vast experience working on all levels of the Illinois and Federal Appellate Court System, including the Illinois Supreme Court and the Seventh Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. Our appellate attorneys have an in-depth understanding of the appellate process which has been obtained through thousands of hours of research, writing, and argument before a panel of appellate justices to be as critical as possible.
