Kreisler Law, P.C. has extensive experience handling appeals in the Illinois, Indiana, and Federal Appellate Courts. For more than 40 years, the firm’s attorneys have handled appeals for clients and for other attorneys by referral. Frequently, we are employed by referring trial attorneys as appellate counsel or co-counsel.
These attorneys often defer to us because their skills are best suited to court room trial advocacy rather than appellate services. In other situations, they may not be able to make the extensive time commitments necessary, or they don’t want to be involved in the research-heavy process and the lengthy written presentations required for effective appellate work.
We work with trial attorneys on appellate matters on whatever basis meets their needs, whether by simply taking the entire matter off of their hands, by providing an advisory opinion on the prospects for success on appeal, or by handling the procedural details of the appeal or the research and drafting work necessary, to preparation of effective briefs in the appellate courts.
We will be happy to provide a free, initial consultation, so that we may discuss the appellate process and how we may best work with you to provide the best results for your client, while blending into the time and other constraints of your busy practice. Handling an appeal adds an entirely new and often unfamiliar set of critical procedural and substantive deadlines and requirements to those already imposed upon the schedule of a busy trial attorney. We can help. Contact us now.
