Experienced Chicago Appeals Lawyers
Strategic Legal Solutions for State & Federal Appeals
While you may have won a large jury verdict, or received an unfavorable
decision from a state or federal judge, your case is not over as one side
can appeal the decision. Whether you wish to appeal your case or the other
side has filed a motion to appeal, the Chicago appeals lawyers at
The Prinz Law Firm have the trial and appellate court experience needed to offer creative
and strategic solutions for your case.
What is an appeal?
Judges and jurors can make mistakes, they are human after all. When those
mistakes lead to unjust verdicts, defendants have the chance to motion
for an appeal. An appeal is a request for a higher court to review the
decision of a lower court. The Chicago appeals attorneys at our firm can
handle your case if you were unhappy with the verdict. Appeals are not
like trials, they involve significant amounts of research into the facts
surrounding your case. An appeals lawyer is responsible for presenting
their research in a legal brief to the higher court. After reviewing the
appellate brief the appeals court decides to reverse or affirm the ruling
giving at the trial.

another successful appeal involving the enforceability of an employment
arbitration clause in
